SHOSHONE, Idaho (KLIX) – The Idaho Transportation Department is accepting public comment, this time for a facilities report for the district administrative building in Shoshone.

The public is invited to comment now through Oct. 28 on the substance of the report and potential locations of the administration building.

The study does not recommend a specific location for a facility, according to ITD, but it does provide impacts to the existing District 4 workforce, potential labor pool, and economic impacts to Shoshone and other possible locations.

According to a news release, “ITD is considering remodeling or replacing the existing administrative building, which was constructed in 1955. The department performed the efficiency and economic analysis to evaluate construction versus lease options and investigate possible locations for the District 4 office.

“The report was presented to the Idaho Transportation Board at its September meeting, but a decision about construction plans and location of the district office is being held until the plan was presented to the public and ITD employees.”

The report and information about how to comment are available on the ITD website and at the following locations:

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


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