People heading to the McCall area next week should expect delays.

Starting April 11, closures will be in place near Smiths Ferry on Highway 55. The road will be closed Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This schedule will continue through late May.

Outside of those hours, the highway will be open for one-way alternating traffic with 15-minute delays.

The Smiths Ferry project area has had three rockslides. In January 2021, two rockslides occurred and in January 2022, another rockslide closed the road.

Since 2020, crews have been working to widen the road, add guardrails and straighten the curvy stretch of highway to improve safety.
