Mudslide Closes Selway Road

The Magruder Corridor is open four hours a day, but the nearby Selway Road is blocked by a mudslide.

According to Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest, work will begin late this week to clear 60 feet of mud, trees and rocks that slid down a hillside and across the road Thursday August 29.

McKay said the slide uprooted large trees (see photo) and uncovered culverts. However, the slide was not in a burned area. Instead, heavy rainfall from thunderstorms is blamed for saturating the ground and causing the earth movement.

Work will begin September 5th and crews will also attempt to stabilize sections of the Selway Road that have eroded and are also in danger of washout.
