Beauty Creek, Glidden among temporary forest road closures

PUBLIC LANDS -- Several roads in the Coeur d'Alene region will be closed during construction starting Tuesday, the Idaho Panhandle National Forests announced this afternoon.

Beauty Creek Campground Road 438 from the junction with Highway 97 to the junction with Forest Road 453.  The first mile will be open to local traffic only to allow access to Beauty Creek Campground. 

Forest Road 202 will be closed from the junction with Deception Creek Road 612 to the junction with Forest Road 434 near Wolf Lodge Saddle. 

Forest Roads 422, 911, and 6310 in the Tepee Creek area will not be closed but expect delays as road improvements are conducted. 

Construction is expected to last two weeks at the sites listed above and each road will be re-opened as the repairs are completed. 

Glidden Lake access via Forest Road 615 will be blocked by powerline work through Thursday.


Wolf Lodge Road 202 has been re-opened from the County Road 202 to Wolf Lodge Saddle.  Trailer use is not recommended due to the narrow road width caused by a road failure.
