Project Overview

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) has initiated a study to evaluate the need for transportation improvements in the Magic Valley area.

This study is being built on previous analysis and will evaluate a range of alternatives such as an additional crossing over the Snake River, or improvements to the existing road network and intersections. The work will be ongoing through early 2023.

What have you learned from previous studies?
What have you learned from previous studies?

Over the years, previous studies have evaluated various locations for potential new river crossings but no projects have advanced. The most recent study, “Magic Valley Origin-Destination Study,” provided an in-depth look into how people travel around the Magic Valley and evaluated potential river crossings at a high level. This current study will build on previous work by providing a more detailed analysis of river crossing and area transportation options with the goal of identifying a project to move forward.
