Salvage logging operations temporarily close Bingo Creek Road

Friday September 3, 2021

(Orofino, Idaho) PotlatchDeltic and Idaho Department of Lands jointly announced the temporary closure of Bingo Creek Road and all its tributaries.  From Tuesday, September 7 until December 31, 2021, this narrow one-lane road will remain closed to all recreational activities and public entry.

Due to  recent wildfires, both landowners planned multiple large-scale salvage logging operations along with other emergency forest management activities in the area.  This closure enhances the safety of the public and commercial vehicle operators given the anticipated heavy commercial traffic in the closed area.
