More on the Warren Wagon Road Project



Wednesday, May 24, 2017

1:00 PM – 2:30 PM & 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Informational Open House

Payette National Forest Building – Weiser/Idaho Conference Room

ID PFH 21(7); Warren Wagon Road Project

Valley County and Western Federal Lands Highway

Division (WFLHD) of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will hold a public open house regarding the latest updates on the proposed reconstruction of Warren Wagon Road, located in Valley County.


Identified as Warren Wagon Road Project, the proposed project focuses on approximately 5.5 miles of roadway, from milepost 2.23 (McCall/Valley County line) to just beyond the intersection with East Side Drive in Valley County.


The project includes pavement widening, culvert replacements, and guardrail installation. At Milepost 7.89, the intersection of Warren Wagon Road and East Side Drive would be reconstructed to a 90-degree approach. Proposed improvements also include a wider paved shoulder to more safely accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians.


All interested persons are invited to attend and present relevant comments and questions. Design information will be displayed and personnel from WFLHD will be present to answer questions and receive comments. The “open house” format allows the public to come at any time during the advertised hours, gather pertinent information about the project, speak one-on-one with project personnel, and leave as they wish. A formal presentation will not be included as part of this open house.



Comments will be collected through June 23, 2017. Written comments or requests should be submitted to: Dan Slanina, Project Manager, Western Federal Lands, 610 East 5th Street, Vancouver, WA 98661; voice telephone 360-619-7617.


Any person needing assistance or auxiliary communications equipment due to sensory impairment or other disability should contact Dan Slanina (contact info above). Notification of the need for assistance must be made by May 18, 2017.

Doing Democracy—the Art of Public Discussion
May 16th from 6:30-8:30pm

This program will sponsor open public dialogues throughout the year on issues facing our community. The hope is to foster a culture of civil discourse that allows multiple perspectives and creative conflict leading to the discovery of common needs and perhaps common visions.

Last month, our first conversation focused on brainstorming and generating topics for this year’s discussions, which were then voted on. Our very first discussion will be on the topic of:  “How can we design our community so a person’s income is not a barrier to opportunity or well-being?  What does it say about our collective priorities that people who work here cannot afford a decent living?”  All are welcome, so come down and meet with your fellow citizens.  Free babysitting will be provided.


Hiker’s Guide Author Visit
May 17th at 6:30pm

Come join local author, Scott Marchant, for an introduction and slideshow on hikes from his new guidebook–The Hiker’s Guide McCall & Cascade (2nd Edition). The new book, which will release in late April, highlights 65 hikes near McCall, Cascade and Warm Lake. In this 2nd edition, you will discover twenty-one new hikes, different hiking options for hikes found in the 1st edition, improved maps and color photography. Scott will share many of the new trails he discovered over the last year including the best hikes for early season, views, solitude, wildflowers, backpacking and hiking with the family. In addition to the scenic photography Scott will share, he will also discuss trailhead access and the best times to hike each trail.
