The road has been closed since last Wednesday due to a large rock slide. Crews are still removing boulders and other debris. Motorists should expect delays and use extreme caution in the canyon.
OXBOW, Oregon, Jan. 27, 2015 — Idaho Power plans to re-open Hells Canyon Road at 9 a.m. Friday, following partial removal of a rock slide that blocked the road north of Hells Canyon Park last week. A single lane will be open, with flaggers on hand to guide vehicles through the slide area. Motorists should expect delays, and are urged to use extreme caution in the canyon, especially in the slide area.
The slide was about 60 yards long and included numerous large boulders. Crews worked through the weekend to clear the road. Some of the boulders on the road were so large, they had to be blasted to make them small enough to remove.
Idaho Power will provide updates on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. Follow us at facebook.com/idahopower and on Twitter @idahopower.
It could be up to a week before vehicles can be allowed north of Hells Canyon Park. Idaho Power crews are removing a 60-yard-long section of boulders and rock, and clearing additional unstable material from the cliff above the road.read more
Wi-Fi enabled flow monitors are now available at the Hells Canyon Visitors Center, Pittsburg Landing, Cache Creek and Heller Bar. The Wi-Fi signal originates from the stationary flow monitors at these locations. Users should be able to detect the signal up to 0.5 miles from the flow monitor location. Signal strength depends on the terrain, line of sight to the antenna and weather conditions.
Any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a smart phone, tablet computer or laptop computer should be able to access the river flow data. Users should keep in mind that this signal does not provide access to the Internet and is only for providing flow data in Hells Canyon. The Wi-Fi network cannot be used to send or receive emails or access other types of web-based information.
