Nevada Reminds Southern Idaho Motorist Highway 93 is OPEN
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) Southern Idaho travelers headed to Nevada are being reminded that U.S. Highway 93 is open.
The Nevada Department of Transportation says it has received many calls from people in southern Idaho asking if the Highway reopened after being closed earlier this month because of flood damage. NDOT says the highway has been cleared since February 12 and remains open.
Salmon Falls Creek had run over the highway on Feb. 9 preventing travel. Some areas along the road eroded away which is being repaired. The rest area at Salmon Falls Creek just south of Jackpot will remain closed because of flooding.
Nevada State Route 233 between I-80 and the Nevada/Utah state line is still closed after flood waters washed away several sections of the roadway. A contractor is currently working on rebuilding the roadway which requires significant amounts of material. NDOT does not have a time frame of when 233 may reopen.
