High flows on the Boise River have led to the closure of a road in Caldwell, according to a press release from the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office.
River Road between West Plymouth Street (the old steel bridge across the river) and Channel Road is closed but is expected to reopen in the coming week, the sheriff’s office reported Sunday. High river flows washed away part of the northbound lane of traffic and the adjacent riverbed.
Canyon County Highway District will attempt to repair the roadway this week, according to the news release. CCSO urged motorists to watch for other damaged roadways.
