Thanks to early morning flash flooding, 15 miles of road from the junction of Slide Gulch and the Middle Fork Boise River Road are closed.

Forest officials say they’re working with the Atlanta Highway District to repair the road, but it could be closed for several days.

Arrowrock recreation facilities are still open. Alternate access to the Middle Fork of the Boise River is reachable through Forest roads off Highway 21.

More information is available at the Idaho City Ranger District at 208-392-668.
