Construction is expected to begin south of Burley on Monday (June 8) at the intersection of Idaho Highway 27, West 600 South and South Pole Line Road.

“This safety improvement will widen the roadway and provide designated left turn lanes for motorists traveling on the highway,” said ITD Project Manager Brock Dillé. “It will also increase mobility in the area with through traffic no longer needing to slow down for vehicles making turns onto the adjacent roadways.”

During construction, traffic will be reduced to a single lane and guided by flaggers or temporary signals. Work is expected to continue until mid-July.

Motorists should anticipate minor delays and may encounter some access closures to county roads. Drivers are encouraged to consider another route while work on this project is underway.

The general contractor is Idaho Materials and Construction.
