Hwy 12 Closed Tonight
KOOSKIA, ID – Highway 12 will be closed tonight near Fish Creek Bridge. A crane nearly went into the Lochsa River August 2nd, and the Transportation Department will completely close the road to get it out. It could take up to 12 hours. The plan is to close Highway 12 at 8:00 pm, and open it again tomorrow morning at 8 am. The ITD warns drivers that there are not many locations to turn around large vehicles, so they are advised to wait until it’s open again, or to turn around before mileposts 99 (eastbound) or 120 (westbound), or to plan an alternate route.
