Roadway repairs to occur next week on ID-75 in Blaine County
SHOSHONE---The Idaho Transportation Department will begin repairs this week on Idaho Highway 75 in Blaine County. Work will occur on various stretches of roadway between milepost 118 and 132 on both north and southbound lanes.
Weather permitting, crews are anticipated to complete work by the end of August.
“We are working to fix areas of the highway which saw substantial damage over the lengthy winter months, including the corner of Elkhorn Road in Ketchum,” said ITD area foreman Brad Lynch. “This should improve the driving experience for motorists throughout the Wood River Valley.”
Some areas will require a detour while work is being performed. Motorists are advised to exercise caution and follow signs which will be in place to safely direct drivers through the area.
Repairs are expected to take place between 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Work will not be performed over Labor Day weekend.
The Idaho Transportation Department is responsible for all highways on the State Highway System – interstates, state highways and U.S. routes. All other roads are under the jurisdiction of the local, city or county entity.
