January Hells Canyon?

Heads up: A huge landslide has blocked the road into Hells Canyon Dam and the launch site. No estimate how long it will take to clear the slide. Best check before you haul your gear over there.

it'll be cleared up well before spring and summer though. Idaho Power has a vested interest in keeping the road to the dam open. You can bet money they'll be getting it open as quickly as possible.

Our crews say they will have it clear in a few more days. They opened one lane temporarily so folks that were on the dam side of the slide could get out. There will probably be ongoing work for awhile to try and stabilize the area that gave way.

update

From our (Idaho Power's) facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/#!/idahopower

Here is the text if you don't do facebook

We have an update on last week’s rock slide that closed the road to Hells Canyon Dam. The plan is to re-open the road this Friday with flaggers and single-lane traffic around the slide area. Pictures show our progress and what still remains of the slide.
