Expect Delays on Whitebird Ridge Road #624 during Timber Harvest Operations
KAMIAH, Idaho (October 14, 2020) – Timber harvest operations along Forest Service Road #624, commonly known as Whitebird Ridge Road, will cause delays to travelers in the area.
Timber harvest equipment will be occupying the roadway during ongoing harvest operations associated with forest management work on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests’ Salmon River Ranger District. Although the road will remain open during this work, travelers in the area should expect delays up to three hours on the Whitebird Ridge Road. The equipment will be removed from the roadway in the evenings, so those passing through before or after working hours will not be impacted.
Crews expect to be working in this area over the next few weeks, but the exact timeframe may vary. Signage along the road will indicate the current status of delays in the area. For more information, please contact the Salmon River Ranger District at (208) 451-4366.
