Repair work starts Monday on Pack River Road

October 14, 2021

Road repair work on Pack River Road will begin Monday, October 18. The road is in the Upper Pack River area near Sandpoint, Idaho. While most delays are expected to be short, some delays could last four hours.

The repairs will take place approximately two miles above the Pack River Snowmobile Parking Area. The work will restore travel-way width and improve the road surface and drainage. The steep drop-off along the shoulder resulted when heavy rainfall led to failure of the fill slope. Work is expected to continue through November 1.

The Forest Service appreciates the public's patience as we work to improve this public driving route.

Visitors to the Idaho Panhandle National Forests are encouraged to pick up a free Motor Vehicle Use Map at any Ranger Station. It is also available for download onto a smart device through the Avenza Maps app.

For additional information about this project, please contact the Sandpoint Ranger Station at (208) 263-5111 or visit our Forest website at
