Pack River Road work to start Monday

| October 17, 2021 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT — Road repair work on Pack River Road 231 is slated to start Monday, Oct. 18. While most delays are expected to be short, some delays could last 4 hours.

The repairs will take place approximately 2 miles above the Pack River Snowmobile Parking Area. The work will restore travel-way width and improve the road surface and drainage. The steep drop-off along the shoulder resulted when heavy rainfall led to failure of the fill slope. Work is expected to continue through Nov. 1.

Forest Service officials said they appreciate the public's patience as they work to improve the route.

Visitors to the Idaho Panhandle National Forests are encouraged to pick up a free motor vehicle use map at any ranger station. It is also available for download onto a smart device through the Avenza Maps app.
