Idaho Highway 97 closed at milepost 76.9 in October for slide repairs

Slide damage at ID-97 at milepost 76.9 from April 2017.

Starting Wednesday, October 9, traffic will be detoured around a closure on Idaho Highway 97 nine miles north of Harrison as contractors repair damage from a March 2017 slide.

The detour will last for three weeks, with drivers directed to Asbury Road and Half Round Bay Road as alternate routes.

Work includes excavating underneath the highway at milepost 76.9 and adding material to support the slope before replacing the pavement.

Repairs are partially weather-dependent, so drivers are advised to check for the latest impacts.
