ID-55, Smiths Ferry Improvements

This project will widen shoulders, minimize roadway curves and install guardrail sections in certain locations to improve driver safety. This work began in early September 2020 and is anticipated to last through late fall 2022.

LABOR DAY SCHEDULE
Due to anticipated high traffic volume for the holiday weekend, both lanes on ID-55 near Smiths Ferry will be open Friday, September 3, through Monday, September 6.

FALL SCHEDULE
Starting Wednesday September 8, drivers can expect full road closures Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one-way alternating traffic outside of those hours. Please note: the delays may be significant immediately after the road reopens due to large traffic volumes. Once this traffic clears, drivers can expect 15-minute delays.
