A $1.3 million project to improve park facilities and safety began in September and will run through the winter, when visitor activity slows and weather conditions favor construction and rehabilitation work on the MeadowMarsh Forest.
The construction work includes utility upgrades to the Aspen Loop in the Peninsula Campground, paving of the road to Osprey Point, and repair of the Peninsula Boat Ramp.
For more information, visit the Ponderosa Projects page.
Preliminary work activities, including snow removal, for the ID-55 construction between Smiths Ferry and the Rainbow Bridge will start March 8. Drivers can expect daytime work with a 15-minute delay through March 12.
Spring construction will start on March 15. Expect full road closures Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
