Visitors to the Palouse Ranger District of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests should be prepared for travel impacts and a campground closure due to a Latah County bridge replacement project starting mid-July, according to a national forests news release.

The North Latah County Highway District will close Park Road (County Road 1963) while replacing the Park Road Bridge near Little Boulder Campground and the Potlatch Canyon Trailhead this summer. The existing bridge is load restricted and needs to be replaced.

The Park Road bridge replacement project is scheduled to take place from July 16 to Aug. 15, at which time Park Road will be closed where it crosses the Potlatch River. Alternative routes are available for access to the rest of Park Road, but detours are lengthy.

Little Boulder Campground will be closed in conjunction with the bridge replacement. The Potlatch Canyon Trailhead will also be closed for public safety as construction equipment will be working in the area.

For information about the Park Road bridge replacement project, please contact the North Latah County Highway District at (208) 877-1101. For area conditions and recreation information on the Palouse Ranger District, please call (208) 875-1131.
