Notice of Road Closure
NESBITT LANE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT

Gem County Road and Bridge will be replacing a bridge on Nesbitt Lane this fall over Squaw Creek. As a result, Nesbitt Lane from 3rd Fork Road to 2nd Fork Road will be completely closed starting August 20, 2018 through approximately October 20, 2018. Travelers are encouraged to use alternative routes during the construction time frame. Local residents only will be directed to access their properties by using 2nd Fork road and Nesbitt Lane east of the construction site. We appreciate your patience while we make this much needed improvement for Gem County residents. Any questions concerning the project please contact Gem County Road and Bridge @ 208-365-3305.
