at Lucile recreation site
Construction of a turn lane from highway 95 into the Bureau of Land Managementís (BLMís) Lucile Recreation Site along the Lower Salmon River is expected to begin next week. The improvement will provide easier and much safer access for users of the popular site along the River.
Construction is planned to begin on September 4 and will be completed within two months. Delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected for travelers heading north on highway 95. Local Whitebird-based contractor, Cook and Sons, was awarded the contract and expects to operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the weekdays. The company may add weekends to the work schedule as well.
The BLMís Lucile Recreation site is a popular take-out site for rafters, boaters and those floating the Lower Salmon from Riggins, Idaho.
