The Boise National Forest has published a new Winter Travel Map that is available to the public. To implement the restrictions on the new map, attached is a closure order that replaces over-snow vehicle restrictions previously found on three separate orders. The attached closure order does not create new restrictions. In addition, other over-snow vehicle closure orders still remain in place (i.e. Idaho City Airport, Van Wyck Creek-Cascade RD, short-term closures, etc.).

Construction is beginning on the Davey’s bridge replacement project located where the Banks-Lowman highway crosses the Middle Fork of the Payette River just south of Crouch. While this project is not on Forest Service lands, it will impact travel on the Forest. The bridge will be constructed a half lane at a time and will not result in long term road closures, however delays should be expected.
Effective 8-28-2014 - Cascade RD has a temporary closure to provide for the protection of public health and safety on NFS road #472 (Lodgepole Creek Road) due to road damage by recent high intensity rainfall events.
