TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) A number of roads on public land have washed out with recent moisture and snow melt in southern Idaho. The Twin Falls District of the Bureau of Land Management says many creek crossings have washed away.

The wet conditions have destroyed sections of these roads and when vehicles attempt to pass through they further the damage by creating extremely deep ruts, or risk getting stuck. In some instances where the cattle guards or culverts have washed out, it can create a surprise for a driver that often leads to injury or vehicle damage,” said Jarbidge Field Manager Elliot Traher.

Some of the roads are impassable and may cause damage to person or vehicle if they try to cross. Those roads with major damage include:

·         Jarbidge Field Office: Clover, Pothole, Water Haul, Crows Nest and Big Hill Roads

·         Shoshone Field Office: BLM Road in King Hill area

·         Burley Field Office: East end of the Milner Loop Road and roads within the Goose Creek Drainage

Repair crews will not be able to fix those roads until areas begin to dry out. The public is encouraged to report damaged or impassable roads to the Twin Falls District Office by calling 208-736-2350.
