Public invited to view final design for Declo Port of Entry project

Posted by

The Idaho Transportation Department invites the public to an open house event on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, to review and comment on the proposed final design for the new Declo Port of Entry project.

The open house will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the city council chambers at Burley City Hall, 1401 Overland Ave. in Burley. Those interested in the project may drop in anytime during the meeting to view the proposed final design, project illustrations and related information. Preliminary information on the construction traffic control plan will also be available for review. Representatives from ITD and the Stanley Consultants design team will be on hand to answer questions and gather input.

The purpose of the project is to relocate the Cotterel Port of Entry (POE) to a site that provides a safer traveling experience for all vehicles on the interstate system.  The new location on Interstate 84 (near MP 219, east of Exit 216) will facilitate more efficient trucking operations through advanced technology and will meet current federal compliance standards.

Elements of the new facility will include: new eastbound and westbound on and off ramps, support of utility infrastructure, scales with weigh-in-motion and automated vehicle identification technologies, video equipment, luminaries, signage and operations office buildings.  Construction is scheduled to start in FY 2020.

For more information on the open house and the project, please contact Nathan Jerke, ITD Project Manager at 208-886-7809 or Nathan.jerke@itd.idaho.gov.
