Washout temporarily closes Beauty Creek Road

PUBLIC LANDS -- Recent rains and flooding have caused a washout on Forest Road 438, also known as the Beauty Creek Road.  The route is temporarily closed while Idaho Panhandle National Forests crews repair the damage between mile marker 1 and mile marker 4.4.

Flood damage has made the road impassable, but an alternate route accessing the upper reaches of Beauty Creek is available through Forest Road 439, near Mount Coeur d’Alene.

Barriers and road closure signs are posted at the entrance to FR 438.

Info: Coeur ‘d Alene River Ranger District,  (208) 664-2318.
