Road & Bridge


Clearwater county will be conducting slide repair work on Upper Fords Creek Road. 

 The first project will begin April 11, 2018 and be located at mile marker mile marker 7.4 Upper Fords Creek Road.  The work will be constructed by Geo Stabilization International.

Portable traffic signals will be in place to manage traffic, as the road will be one lane only. No traffic delays are anticipated.  The road will be available at all times for emergency services.

The project is anticipated to last three weeks, after completion, the work will move to 3.2 (near intersection of Upper Fords and Crow Bench).  Traffic accessibility will be the same as mile marker 7.4, Upper Fords Creek Road.

Clearwater County Road & Bridge will be giving weekly updates.
