Two-phased Project to Begin North of Hailey on Idaho 75
HAILEY, Idaho (KLIX)-Work will begin the second week of March to reconstruct the state highway north of Hailey along with pedestrian ramps and sidewalks. The Idaho Transportation Department announced crews will begin work on the two-phased project on March 8, weather permitting, beginning with pedestrian walkways and reconstruction of a section on State Highway 75. “The first phase of this project will take place over the coming month and involve the reconstruction of sidewalks and pedestrian ramps at McKercher Boulevard and E Fork Road to bring them into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act standards,” said ITD South-central Idaho Project Manager Brock Dillé in a prepared statement. “We will also reconstruct a portion of SH-75 near the Big Wood River Bridge to improve ride quality.” The second phase will involve a section of roadway between Cobblestone Lane to Timber Way. Construction will involve lane restrictions with signs guiding motorists through the work area. Work is expected to be completed by May of this year.
