Work is expected to begin Tuesday, June 1 on US-30 in Gooding County. This project will improve approximately eight miles of highway between Bliss and Hagerman.
During construction, crews will first resurface the highway and then apply a sealcoat to protect the new surface and provide better traction for drivers.
“This work will improve the highway and create a better driving experience for motorists,” said ITD Project Manager Travis Hitchcock. “In addition to roadway work, crews will also replace guardrail along the Bliss Grade to improve safety in the area.”
Construction will last through mid-July. Motorists should anticipate short delays and watch for the presence of flaggers or pilot cars to guide them through the one-lane work zone during working hours. Crews are expected to be on site every weekday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Knife River is the primary contractor for this $2.5 million project.
