Freezeout Road Near Clarkia to Reopen on Monday

Friday October 20, 2023

Clarkia, ID – A popular road for campers and other recreational users will reopen on Monday, October 23, 2023. The Floodwood bridge project will be completed this weekend and Freezeout Road (also known as the Floodwood Main Haul Road) between Clarkia and C-PTPA Boehls Camp will again be open for traffic.

The new bridge across Floodwood Creek spans 120 feet and is longer and larger than the old 80-foot bridge that was degraded and had exceeded its life expectancy. The new bridge allows for safer travel for all vehicles, especially heavy trucks. The road approaching the bridge was realigned by Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) and its cooperator.
