Wednesday and Thursday, October 23 and 24, the Bitterroot National Forest will be working on the wilderness road, the Magruder Corridor.

The work will require temporary delays of up to two hours on those two days, as crews work to examine the roadbed for stability. Already this year, several sections of the 101-mile road have been stabilized due to erosion. In some cases the road was in danger of washing out.

This week’s work, according to Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest, will include drilling into the road, with heavy equipment parked in the way of traffic. The work site is near mile post 35, about a mile west of the Selway Road turnoff, near Magruder Crossing.

The road, which divides the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness from the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, allows vehicles to drive from Montana to Idaho from the West Fork Ranger District to Dixie, Idaho.
