Transportation is essential to Idaho’s response during the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to provide a safe system to allow for the essential delivery of goods, medical equipment and other important services throughout Idaho and the nation. Whether it is maintaining highways and bridges, or building new infrastructure, the Idaho Transportation Department and our transportation partners are committed to keeping Idaho goods, agricultural products and services moving during these times. For more information, visit Idaho’s COVID-19 page.
Although most complete closures of US-95 will be scheduled at night, during the second week of April, traffic will be stopped in both directions to allow the construction of an equipment access trail above the rock slope. Rock and other debris will be pushed off the slope into a catchment area for cleanup. Drivers should expect delays of at least 15 minutes; if rock falls onto the road, delays could become longer as crews remove it.
Signage and guardrail work begins
Expect reduced speeds now that contractors are on scene to replace signage and guardrail.
