BOISE -- Idaho Department of Transportation has closed State Highway 55 between Garden Valley Road and Smith's Ferry Drive due to a mudslide that is blocking the roadway.

ITD says the slide happened in the Zimmer Creek area, where last year a fire burned the vegetation in the area.

Officials say that the highway will most likely be closed until Friday morning.

For up to date traffic information you can always call 511 or 1-800-432-7623.
