Heavy Rains Result In Road Woes In North Idaho

The cost of repairing Bonner County roads damaged by stormwater runoff is expected to exceed $1 million.

The northern Idaho county was expected to formally declare a state of emergency Tuesday. The designation would allow officials to apply for state or federal disaster relief funding to repair public roads maintained by the county.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports sections of several roadways in the county have either failed or become impassable in the wake of record rainfall throughout the region.

Officials say last week’s downpour caused about $800,000 in road damage, while damage from a previous storm is expected to cost around $200,000.
