ID-55, Smiths Ferry Improvements

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will make safety improvements to ID-55 between Smiths Ferry and the Rainbow Bridge. The project will widen shoulders, minimize roadway curves and install guardrail sections in certain locations. This work will begin in early September 2020 and include one-way alternating traffic and full road closures at times. The project is anticipated to last through late fall 2022. Join us for one of two online public meetings hosted by ITD to discuss planned safety improvements to ID-55 at Smiths Ferry. The same information will be provided at each meeting, beginning with a project overview presentation followed by a Q&A with ITD and contractor representatives.
