Temporary road around U.S. Highway 95 rockslide now open 24/7

The Idaho Transportation Department has opened the temporary road along U.S. Highway 95 around a major rockslide south of Riggins to night travel.

The roadway, which opened July 27th, had only been open during daylight hours as crews continued work to stabilize the slope above. The original slide closed the highway on July 3rd. ITD is still working on plans for a permanent fix to main roadway.

Old Pollock Road, which had been used as an alternate route will now be open to local traffic only. (ITD)
