BOISE, Idaho – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff at Lucky Peak Dam and Lake restored road access to Turner Gulch and Foote Park recreation areas today, after clearing accumulated snow that prevented vehicle traffic.
Corps rangers advise drivers to use caution because winter temperatures and recent snowfall have created icy conditions on roads, even though most of the snow has been removed. Visitors are urged to avoid attempting to use Turner Gulch boat ramp, unless there is an emergency, because it is still covered in ice and snow.
All winter outdoor-recreation enthusiasts should dress warmly and stay dry to help avoid cold-weather health hazards. For tips on cold-weather health safety, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/winter/duringstorm/outdoorsafety.html.
