Release Date: Oct 5, 2018  

The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests anticipates being able to re–open Forest Service Road #447, also known as the Palouse River Road, on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the conclusion of current construction activities.


Last month, FSR 447 was closed between milepost 1.8 (Strychnine Creek Bridge) and milepost 4.2 (FSR 381) for public safety during a collaborative road widening project conducted by PotlatchDeltic and the USDA Forest Service.
