It’s been a long time coming, but after 2 years of work, Swimming Woman Road is completely finished and open for use. During the flood of 2011 the road was extensively damaged with parts being totally washed away. It was at this time decided to re-route the road to the west of it’s original location, resulting in a longer delay of opening the road, but the new route should avoid the same extreme damage should Swimming Woman Creek flood again in the future.
