Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The Montana Department of Transportation reported that Idaho reopened a 61-mile portion of U.S. Highway 12 on Thursday.

The threat of avalanches forced the Idaho Department of Transportation to close a stretch of the roadway from Powell to Lowell at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Montana Department of Transportation sent a notice, stating that the highway was closed from MP 161 to MP 100 on the Idaho side of the pass and that the closure could last for several days.

But travel on that portion of the road resumed after 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.
