That's the bridge on the North Fork of the Boise River, Road Creek Rd 376. No problems just cross on Swanholm Rd 327.
I agree with Muzhik. That's the bridge that crosses the North Fork of the Boise River near Barber Flat.
Instead of taking that road, you come in off of 156/Phifer Creek and go pretty much straight across to 327/Swanholm Road Cutoff and follow that to 384 and turn right to pick up the IBDR again. It would be much easier, too. I rode my TW200 on 156 where the bridge is closed some years back when it was still open to vehicle traffic. It was pretty tough in places.
If that's the only bridge blockage on the route, then it is easily navigated to avoid it.
I've ridden some of those roads, mostly 327 and 384, and it is pretty good road. It is dirt/gravel that is graded once or twice a year. Your biggest challenges in this area are washboards and potholes. It is tiring but passable.
tmcdonald0429, if you plan to do this part of the route, PM me and maybe we can meet up for part of it.
Best of luck with your planning.
