(STAFF REPORTS/Chewelah Independent)
If you’re thinking about using Flowery Trail Road to head to Pend Oreille County, you might want to think again.
While you can drive over the mountain pass to make it to Pend Oreille County, the road will be closed at the intersection of Flowery Trail and Danforth Road today and there will be no detour provided. You can still make it up to 49 Degrees North outside of Chewelah, however.
Motorists must use an alternate route if they want to get to Usk, which usually includes going down to Loon Lake and take Gardenspot road (a few more turns are needed after that) or up to Colville to use the Tiger Highway.
The road will be closed for 24 hours with a possibility of closure on July 24.
