ITD will re-evaluate the project identified in the 2008 Record of Decision (ROD)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to determine if corridor conditions or regulatory policies have changed that would affect the design of the project. Work will include:
-Updating traffic projections through 2047 (design year).
-Evaluating current corridor conditions, regulatory policies and the 2008 concept design.
-Developing preliminary design plans for the roadway and Trail Creek Bridge.
-Completing the re-evaluation of the ROD to determine how the proposed designs would affect the human and natural environment along the corridor.
-Completing final design plans for construction.
This project is part of a vision for improving the Idaho 75 corridor in the Wood River Valley. Public involvement is important to ITD and the success of the project. ITD will reach out to the public for input on the proposed improvements throughout the project. Opportunities for participation include community working groups, public meetings and stakeholder interviews.
