Smiths Ferry rock slide

Support Local Journalism


Idaho State Highway 55 between Smiths Ferry and Round Valley Road will remain closed through the Thanksgiving weekend following a large rockslide that occurred on Thursday (Nov. 18) afternoon.

Geotechnical experts are onsite evaluating the safety and stability of the slope, along with determining how much material needs to be removed.

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) recommends holiday travelers make plans to use US-95 as an alternate route. The rockslide occurred during a scheduled road closure and no one was injured.
