Improvements planned on Garden Creek Road

This aerial view, taken by Corey Rice from one of Pete Nelson’s Middle Fork Aviation airplanes, shows Garden Creek Road in the middle of the photo where it becomes Main Avenue at the city limits. Also pictured are the cliffs above Challis, an irrigated hayfield to the left and parts of Challis Golf Course to the right.

Right now the lower 2 miles of Garden Creek Road is 20 feet wide and has no shoulders, a couple of bad corners, poor drainage and a culvert instead of a bridge where it crosses the creek.

County voters decide fate of new jail on Nov. 7

The old rock jail is more than 100 years old, houses only six inmates and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The above view is from the south, showing a portion of the chain-link fence and concertina wire surrounding the exercise yard. If voters approve a bond request, a new jail and courthouse renovation project would add a structure to the north that would attach to the existing courthouse. Todd Adams photo

While the ballot isn’t loaded for the Nov. 7 general election, Custer County officials remind voters that they are making a decision beyond city council, mayoral and special district races.
