ID 6 in both directions: Road construction.

Between Fiddler's Ridge Loop; Travis Road (Potlatch) and O'Rielly Road (near Onaway). Road construction work is in progress. Bridge construction work is in progress. There is work on the shoulder. Look out for flaggers. There is a width limit in effect. The roadway is reduced to one lane. Width limit 12'0". Expect 5 - minute delays. Until October 30, 2019 at about 5:30PM PDT.

Web Comment: Next Tuesday, July 2nd, both directions of traffic will be shifted onto a temporary shoofly roadway over Gold Creek to allow for construction of a new bridge over the creek on the exiting alignment. Gold Creek is located approimately 2 miles east of Potlatch on SH6 (approx SH6 MP 3.5). Reduced speeds of 35mph are advised with signage in the area. Please obey the traffic advisories and slow down through the construction project. Beginning June 6, work began to build a newly aligned highway from the east side of Potlatch to about 2 miles east of Potlatch. In addition, the Gold Creek Bridge will be replaced. In addition to the bridge work, earthwork crews are performing a large amount of excavation/fill and grading for the new highway alignment between Potlatch and Gold Creek.This is mostly off line work. There are 35 mph speed reduction advisories posted through the project limits. Truck traffic will be entering/exiting the highway throughout construction, but much of the work will on the shoulders and off of the highway. There is potential for intermittent flagging operations throughout construction when traffic will be required to stop for short durations (up to 15 minutes).
