Public invited to attend third public meeting on I-15/US-20 Connector Study in Idaho Falls
RIGBY- The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will host its third public meeting for the I-15/US-20 Connector study on May 16, 2019, at the Shilo Inn Conference Center, 780 Lindsay Blvd., in Idaho Falls. Two identical sessions of the meeting will be held to offer the public more flexibility to attend.
- Session 1: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
- Session 2: 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
The format of this meeting will be different than the previous two open houses. Participants will join guided tours of the display materials, followed by an open house at the end of the tour.
ITD, the City of Idaho Falls, and Bonneville County are working together on a study to improve the roadway connections on I-15 and US-20, and are seeking public input on concept-level alternatives.
The study includes examining I-15 and US-20 interchanges at Broadway Street, Grandview Drive on I-15, Lindsay Boulevard, Riverside Drive/City Center, Science Center Drive, and Lewisville Highway on US-20, and potential express routes to the north and west of Idaho Falls.
The meeting is an opportunity for the public to review the Planning for Environmental Linkages (PEL) Level 2 concept alternatives, ask questions and provide comments with the project team.
For those unable to attend on May 16, ITD will host an online version of the open house on the website at http://i15us20connector.com/ The online meeting will be available until May 31, 2019.
