2013 Hells Canyon Dam road closures
Improvement Project Restricts Hells Canyon Dam Road Access
Ongoing work on the dam’s spill gates will narrow the road across the dam. The road may be closed at certain times, and notice will be provided.
The road on top of Hells Canyon Dam will be restricted to one lane beginning Monday, April 15, and through the summer, as Idaho Power continues a dam improvement project. The company wants to make sure visitors traveling to the area are aware of the construction work and limited road access so they can plan accordingly.
