Construction is planned to begin on September 4 and will be completed within two months. Delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected for travelers heading north on highway 95. Local Whitebird-based contractor, Cook and Sons, was awarded the contract and expects to operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the weekdays. The company may add weekends to the work schedule as well.
The BLM’s Lucile Recreation site is a popular take-out site for rafters, boaters and those floating the Lower Salmon from Riggins, Idaho.
