RIGGINS, ID - US95 is closed from 4 miles south of Grangeville to New Meadows due to rock, mud and power lines blocking the roadway. The Idaho State Police say the cleanup has begun and some residents along the route are being evacuated where necessary. Road blocks are in place at mileposts 161 and 234 where traffic is being turned around. The bulk of the slide activity is reportedly between mileposts 197 to 205. There has not been an estimate on when US95 will reopen.

Just came off the MFS two days ago. We had a major storm 8/2 that turned the river into chocolate milk for the evening, but it cleared the next day. According to Forest Rangers at Indian, nothing of any significance had blown out at that time. There were some new slides along the river that were not there the last time I floated, but did not form any new rapids.
