I-15 Construction MapIn an effort to improve safety, mobility and economic opportunity for travelers in east Idaho, in 2017 and 2018 the Idaho Transportation Department is undertaking a massive effort to rehabilitate Interstate 15.

In 2017, ITD’s efforts to improve the interstate have resulted in 157 lane miles of new pavement, repairs on 11 bridges, and the replacement of over 62,000 feet of guardrail.

With winter road conditions, we suspend construction activities along I-15 until weather permits in the spring. As spring approaches, we will send out more communications about our construction plans and activities. Until then, you are always welcome to contact us at (208) 239-3377.

Arimo McCammon

Along this project route the interstate road surface was deteriorating and needed to be replaced. The work eliminated rough sections and soft spots on the road. ITD also upgraded the guardrail on I-15. Through a method called Cold-in-Place Recycling, ITD reused the old pavement in the new roadway. This method helped to reduce waste and lower costs.
