SHOSHONE, Idaho (News Release) – Less than two weeks remain for the public to give comment on possible relocation of the District 4 administrative building, currently located in Shoshone.

The Idaho Transportation Department invites comment on the substance of a facilities report regarding the district administration building.

The final report is available for review and ITD is accepting comments about its conclusions. The report and information about how to comment is available on the ITD website and at the following locations:

  • ITD District 4 Office, 216 South Date, Shoshone
  • ITD, Twin Falls Residency Office, 626 Eastland Ave. South, Twin Falls
  • Shoshone City Hall, 207 South Rail St. West, Shoshone

ITD is considering remodeling or replacing the existing administrative building, which was constructed in 1955. ITD performed the efficiency and economic analysis to evaluate construction versus lease options as well as investigate possible locations for the District 4 office.

The study, complete by Richard Gardner of Bootstrap Solutions in Emmett, does not recommend a specific location for a facility, but provides the impacts to the existing district workforce, potential labor pool, and economic impacts to Shoshone and other possible locations.

The district will complete a final report and provide a location recommendation for the consideration of the Idaho Transportation Board at its November meeting.
