Background

State Highway 24 and State Highway 25 have long served as major connections between Interstate 84 and the cities of Paul, Rupert, Acequia, and Minidoka. In recent years, only minor maintenance activities have occurred on these highways, with the most recent project being installation of a traffic signal at Oneida and F Street in 2004.

Major Improvements

  • Roadway Restoration – This will include the removal of existing asphalt, re-compacting of the roadway base and paving of the highway.
  • Stormwater Repairs – This will include system wide repairs to extend the longevity of the stormwater system.
  • Pedestrian Ramps – This will include American with Disabilites Act upgrades.
  • Intersection Update – This will include reconfiguration of the intersection at Oneida Street and East 8th Street to provide better traffic flow.
  • Railroad Upgrades – This will include upgrades to portions of the railroad by Eastern Idaho Railroad.

What To Expect During Construction

♦   The highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
♦   Private and public access points will be impacted.
♦ Temporary short term closures will occur for access points entering the highway.
♦ Intersection closures up to two weeks may occur.
♦ ITD will minimize the duration of closures.
♦ No existing access will be removed.

Leading Idaho

As part of Governor Brad Little’s “Leading Idaho” initiative, the 2021 Idaho Legislature dedicated $126 million of one-time funds from Idaho’s budget surplus to transportation projects statewide. The funds were split 60/40 between ITD and local jurisdictions. Construction on this project is paid for with ITD’s portion of the funds that will accelerate projects to replace bridges, restore pavements, and improve mobility in communities across Idaho.
