The Nez Perce–Clearwater National Forests, in coordination with PotlatchDeltic Corporation and the Idaho Department of Lands, will be replacing culverts along Forest Service Road (FSR) 247, Beaver Creek Road, starting on Monday, July 8.

The road will be closed to through traffic while culverts are being replaced.

A detour will be available via FSR 246 (Scofield Road) and Browns Rock, a PotlatchDeltic Corporation road.

The detour will begin at Headquarters and end at Camp 14 at the junction of FSR 680 (Sheep Mountain Road) and FSR 247.

The culvert replacement project is expected to last until mid–August. For more information, please contact Travis Mechling, Engineering, at (208) 476-8210, or by email at
