U.S. Highway 95 was blocked by a rock slide this afternoon, July 3, roughly five miles south of Riggins, near Sheep Creek.
TV station KXLY in the Coeur d'Alene-Spokane area published video captured by a motorist who was in the area at the time of the slide.
It was not immediately known when that section of U.S. Highway 95 might be clear and safe for regular travel.
