The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is studying Idaho 55 to identify current and future needs throughout the corridor. The study will result in three corridor plans (North, Central, South) that identifies policies and projects important to the development of this major arterial over the next 20 years.

The Idaho 55 highway corridor originates 1.7 miles south of Marsing in Owyhee County at the Idaho/Oregon/Nevada junction with U.S. 95 and serves six counties, ending at the junction of U.S. 95 in New Meadows. Most travelers know the highway for its turns along mountain forests, whitewater rapids and favorite recreation spots. The corridor is an important route that supports the regional daily commute, the long-haul trucking industry and recreational traffic.The completed study will include three separate corridor plans:
- South Corridor Plan – ION Junction in Owyhee County to Interstate 84 in Canyon County
- Central Corridor Plan – State Street in Ada County to Banks Lowman Road in Boise County
- North Corridor Plan – Banks Lowman Road in Boise County to New Meadows in Adams County
