POCATELLO – Crews have begun paving US-30 between Georgetown and Nounan Road. This section of roadway has reached the end of its design life, and the roadway needs to be rebuilt to meet current design standards.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane and motorists will be guided through the work zone by flaggers and a pilot car with a speed limit of 45 mph.
To save time and money, the city of Georgetown has been working with the Idaho Transportation Department to make improvements while the road is under construction. The city has hired a contractor to replace the water line through town. It is expected to be finished when the US-30 project is complete.
ITD encourages drivers to slow down, pay attention, follow the posted speed limit and watch for crews working in the area.
Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and check 511.Idaho.gov for driving conditions.
