Construction is expected to begin the last week of April on a portion of US-93 in Lincoln County. The project will involve the addition of northbound and southbound climbing lanes near Notch Butte, south of Shoshone. Work is expected to be complete this coming fall.
“The addition of climbing lanes will allow drivers to safely pass slower vehicles that may be traveling along the elevated stretch of roadway,” said south-central Idaho project coordinator Kenny Lively. “Overall, this project will help improve safety in the corridor for both commercial and passenger vehicles alike.”
Reduced speeds will be in place throughout the project. Drivers should be aware of crews and equipment present during working hours – Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Western Construction is the general contractor for this project.
