The Idaho Transportation Department is working to improve I-15 from the I-15/I-86 junction North to the Fort Hall boundary.
At the end of it's design life, I-15 has been ready for rehabilitation and under construction for the last few years. Part of the I-15 road rehabilitation is the section of roadway from the I-15/I-86 junction North to the Fort Hall boundary which has begun construction as of April and is to completed by the end of July.
I-15 was originally constructed in the 1960s and 1970s. At the end of it’s design life, sections of roadway are cracked and deteriorating. I-15 is a major corridor which sees a large number of traffic year round. In an effort to update I-15, ITD has already completed many sections of roadway however there are still many more projects to be completed. Among one of the many projects in construction this year, I-15/I-86 junction to the Fort Hall boundary from milepost 71.8 to 76 will be under construction starting in April to July.
