Canal Bridge Closure Will Impact Travel at C.J. Strike Reservoir

The bridge will be closed through Feb. 20 while the Elmore County Highway District makes repairs. All Idaho Power facilities are open, but visitors may need to change their route depending on which locations around the reservoir they are trying to reach.

BRUNEAU, Idaho — Anglers, boaters, campers and others planning to visit C.J. Strike Reservoir in the coming weeks should be aware the canal bridge on Strike Dam Cutoff Road is closed until Feb. 20 while Elmore County does repair work.

Idaho Power’s North Park boat ramp is still accessible. Other campgrounds and recreational access points are also open. However, it is not possible to get to C.J. Strike dam via Strike Dam Cutoff Road. Visitors will need to go through Grand View or take the River Road route for access across the dam. Travelers can also go through Bruneau if necessary.
