Construction on State Highway 44 Canal Crossing in Middleton Begins in Late September

BOISE – The Idaho Transportation Department will begin construction of a new canal crossing in Middleton on Idaho Highway 44 between 1st Avenue and Dewey Avenue in late September.

The existing canal crossing is deteriorated and needs to be replaced to maintain safety and mobility for commuters.

ITD will build the project in phases to reduce impacts to motorists. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained during construction and access to local businesses will remain open.

The project is scheduled to be complete in mid-spring 2019.

The contractor for the $840,000 project is Sunroc Corporation.

ITD will continue to update the public about the project. If you have questions, please email Jennifer.gonzalez@itd.idaho.gov or call 208.334.8938.
