The Sandpoint Ranger District is lifting a road closure today for the Grouse Creek Road.

In late May, Forest Service Road #280, Grouse Creek Road, was significantly impacted with flood damage at mile marker two and was closed for public safety to motorized travelers.

The water flows have since decreased.

Users traveling to the Grouse Creek Road should drive cautious near this area, and expect narrow, rough spots in the road.

Summer is in full swing in Bonner County and the Sandpoint Ranger District wants the public to enjoy the forest.

“We recognize the use and importance of the Grouse Creek Road for recreation and landowner access in the Sandpoint Area,” said Michelle Caviness, Acting Sandpoint District Ranger. “First and foremost, we want to provide for public safety. We will be doing some more road construction this summer to reinforce the stream bank and road, those repairs will likely occur after July 15 to fit the aquatic window for performing stream work.”

For additional information, please contact the Sandpoint Ranger Station at (208) 263-5111.
