BRIDGE BELOW C.J. STRIKE DAM CLOSED UNTIL JULY 31

Idaho Power's bridge over the Snake River is closed so that the wooden deck can be replaced with concrete slabs. The closure requires planning an alternate route when traveling between the north and south sides of the reservoir, the company said.

The bridge crosses the river just west of the reservoir, between Idaho Power's North Park, and Scout and Locust parks near the dam. All of Idaho Power's parks in the area will remain open, but the boat ramp adjacent to the bridge will be closed during the project.

The bridge is on Strike Dam Cutoff Road, which connects Idaho 167 (Grand View Road) on the north to Black Sands Road and River Road on the south.

Alternate routes include continuing west on Grand View Road, which crosses the river to the west at Grand View, or Idaho 51, which crosses the river to the east, several miles north of Bruneau.
