TWIN FALLS, Idaho – The Bureau of Land Management Shoshone Field Office will begin construction on the Dempsey Meadows Road north of King Hill in the Bennett Hills beginning this week -- travel delays are to be expected. The construction, which will replace four culverts and add gravel, is expected to last until Oct. 20. The culvert replacement will be the most disruptive to travelers and is planned for Sept. 19–23.

“Dempsey Meadows Road is a heavily used road, particularly during hunting season. These important improvements have been necessary for some time, so we're pleased that the work has started,” said BLM Shoshone Field Manager Codie Martin.
