Daily and temporary road closures on the Seafoam Road


SALMON, Idaho (KIFI) - The Forest Service has been able to secure more than $12 million in funding to improve road conditions and access to public land over the next two years. 

A portion of the funding comes from the Great American Outdoors Act  In 2023, on the Seafoam/Beaver Creek Road #008, the project will have DAILY CLOSURES starting July 26, 2023 until September 7, 2023 from 9:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday.  There will be a FULL ROAD CLOSURE for three days starting August 7, 8, and 9, 2023. 

The work will reshape the road, clean ditches of debris including soils, downed timber and trees. Several culverts will be replaced, and some will be slightly larger to better accommodate runoff in the area which has been impacted by wildfire. In some locations once the road becomes a narrow single lane roadway, curves will be widened to provide better sight distance, as well as more locations where vehicles can pull over to let other vehicles pass by.

The Road Closure Order #04-13-23-08 is described as follows:


Road 40008

Otherwise known as “Beaver Creek” or “Seafoam” roads.

DAILY CLOSURES: That portion from the junction with Idaho State Highway 21 to Josephus Lake.

Daily temporary closures starting July 26, 2023, at 0800 until September 7th: 9 AM to 4 PM Monday thru Friday, and FULL ROAD CLOSURE for 3 days, August 7, 8th, and 9th.


The purpose of this Order is to notify and protect the public during heavy and/or impassable construction activities (ex: large culvert and bridge replacements). The public will be advised when access is restored.
