Targhee Pass EA

Document: Targhee Pass Environmental Assessment (EA)

EA Update
ITD is currently compiling and reviewing all of the comments received since the release of the EA. Next steps in the EA process include the following:

  1. Respond to public and agency comments and revise the EA as necessary.
  2. Based on the final EA analyses, determine if the proposed project would result in significant environmental or cultural impacts and thus require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement, or if it does not, then a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). A FONSI summarizes the results of the EA and the reasons for the impact determinations. It also includes the responses to comments and discussion of any proposed mitigations.
  3. Issue a public notice on the availability of the FONSI. The signing of the FONSI by FHWA concludes the EA process.

After the EA has been concluded, a mitigation plan will be developed based on the environmental commitments from the FONSI. This mitigation plan would be a part of the plans, specifications and engineering for the construction contractor. Estimated start date for reconstruction of Targhee Pass is 2022.

EA Overview
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) initiated the EA to engage the public, evaluate impacts, risks, benefits, opportunities, and costs associated with reconstruction of Targhee Pass (U.S. 20 between its junction with Idaho 87 and the Montana state line).
