PUBLIC LANDS -- Road construction will require the Bonners Ferry Ranger District to temporarily close Forest Service Road 1007, Caribou Pass Road starting Monday, Oct. 21-Oct. 25 and again Oct. 28-Nov. 1

The road will be reopened Oct. 26-27 to allow visitor access along the road during the weekend.

This closure will temporarily restrict motorized access to the Roman Nose Trailhead.

This closure is necessary to allow the replacement of numerous wooden culverts that are failing, to repair and fill failures in two locations and to reconstruct a segment of road. This closure will provide the opportunity to upgrade critical stream crossings, reducing the risk of road failure and improving the road surface.
