Why it Matters
U.S. 20 is the main east-west arterial in eastern Idaho, running 100 miles between Idaho Falls and the Montana state line. Improving the 6.5-mile stretch of the Henry’s Lake Flat in Island Park will improve traffic safety and flow along a busy two-lane section of the corridor.
Crews constructed passing lanes on northbound U.S. 20 between Island Park Lodge and Red Rock Road and on southbound U.S. 20 between the Henry’s Fork Outlet Bridge and the junction of Idaho 87.
