High and fast water has caused a section of Idaho Highway 21 to close. The Idaho Transportation Department closed more than 10 miles of the well-used road after part of the highway crumbled into a creek, creating "extremely hazardous" driving conditions.
According to ITD's website, the closure begins at milepost 94 to 105.5 between Grandjean Road and the Custer/Boise County line. Crews are working to stabilize the road.
ITD's Jennifer Gonzalez tells the Idaho Statesman the closure is unusual, and is unrelated to a series of avalanches on Idaho 21 this winter.
Stay tuned for the latest on the closure here.
