The old Clearwater County Road Department shops are located on Riverfrot Rd. near the McLaughlin Logging shop, just west of the Clearwater Bridge across the Clearwater River. The main shop was built in the 1930s and buildings were added to it. Over the years it had an office, showers, a rig repair area and various other parts. It had underground fuel storage tanks. For several years, Orofino Celebrations, Inc. (OCI) built their royalty floats there. At the present, it is being used part of the week to bundle cardboard to be shipped for recycling rather than have it go to the landfill.
