The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) invites members of the community to review and provide input on design plans for State Highway 75 between Elkhorn Road and River Street. Individuals can join members of the project team in person on Oct. 11 or participate online from Oct. 11 – 25.
The in-person meeting will be held at the Limelight Hotel (151 Main St. S, Ketchum) on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Community members can drop in anytime to view project information, see design plans and speak with the project team.
The self-guided online discussion will be open from Oct. 11 – 25 at itdprojects.org/projects/Idaho-75. The online meeting will include a short welcome video as well as project information and design plans. Participants will have the opportunity to provide input and see comments from other community members.
This project aims to increase capacity and improve safety along the highway in response to growth and development in recent years that has increased congestion. Plans include widening the highway between Elkhorn Road and River Street, rebuilding the Trail Creek Bridge and improving drainage and other infrastructure.
ITD received feedback from the public during two other community discussions in 2020 and 2021. This will be the third community discussion for this project.
“We are happy to be moving forward with design plans for each of the three segments in this corridor,” ITD Project Manager Nathan Jerke stated. “We’re grateful for all those who have participated in our previous community discussions and we look forward to meeting with the community again.”
