Please be advised that construction on the new Orofino Creek Bridge began June 15. Built in 1960, the current structure is load restricted and has reached the end of its service. When completed, the new bridge will be wider and feature two 11-foot lanes and shoulders.

During construction traffic will have to go around Harmony Heights Loop via the Deer Creek Road side. The project is expected to last approximately 90-days. Work is scheduled Monday - Friday during daytime hours. Motorists are encouraged to slow down and pay attention when traveling in this area. Clearwater County appreciates your patience and is sorry for any inconvenience.

If you have any questions, please contact Richard Kinder, HDR Engineering, Inc. at 208-631-9653 or the Road Department at 208-476-4813.
