KAMIAH, Idaho (September 15, 2021) Forest Service officials are urging the traveling public to be mindful of construction delays starting on Thursday, Sept. 16 and continuing on Friday for road reconstruction supporting the Crooked Christi timber sale on Forest Service Road (FSR) 672. The work is part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Center-Johnson project that encompasses vegetation treatments to reduce the risk or extent of, or increase resilience to insects and disease infestation, and to reduce wildfire risk to the local communities and surrounding federal lands.
Officials state that FSR 672 is a major thoroughfare through the area. During this work, travelers can expect delays of 4-8 hours. Contractors will be replacing several deep-fill culverts that will require closing the road for two days. Road closure signs will be posted at alternate routes or junctions with sufficient space for turning around, and equipment operating signs will be posted as travelers approach work sites.
