Big Wood River Bridge to Elkhorn Road
Project: Big Wood River Bridge to Elkhorn Road
Key No.: 11622
The Big Wood River Bridge to Elkhorn Road section of Idaho 75 is the second stage of design for the Timmerman to Ketchum corridor as directed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement that was completed in 2008. The project limits begin south of the Big Wood River Bridge near the north end of Hospital Drive and terminates just south of the Elkhorn Road intersection - a section approximately 0.68 miles in length. The project will include the rebuilding and widening of the Big Wood River Bridge to four lanes and will transition into the existing lane configuration north of the bridge. The project also will address any environmental impacts associated with its design.
The improved roadway will conform to the concept as determine by the approved Environmental Impact Statement. Development activities will include field surveys, coordination with utilities, contacting adjacent property owners to inform them of how the project may affect their interests, and coordination with local governments and agencies. Much of the work will follow the design standards developed for the Timber Way to Big Wood River Bridge project.
The design process started in February of 2014 and is anticipated to conclude by the end of 2015. Construction is planned for 2016 to 2017.
Regular travelers of Idaho 75 will continue to see many different activities throughout the project limits. Those interested in more information may contact Project Manager Steve Hunter with questions or comments.
