The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is planning to rebuild the Interstate 84/Idaho Highway 50 interchange in 2024 and is seeking public input on several design options.
ITD will display five proposed designs, including the no-build option, at a public open house on October 15, 2019, at the Rock Creek Fire Department, 1159 Main St. N. in Kimberly. The meeting will be held in an open house format between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., giving participants an opportunity to attend anytime within the two-hour time frame. Project team members will be available to discuss the project and answer questions about proposed designs.
The interchange is a key agricultural and industrial route for accessing the Magic Valley along ID-50. As the area grows and more commercial and residential development occurs, the interchange will become even more critical to the safe movement of people and goods.
Improvements are needed to maintain safety, improve mobility, and foster continued economic development in the area.
If you have questions or comments about the project but are unable to attend the public meeting please visit https://itdprojects.org/projects/i-84-kimberly-interchange or contact ITD Project Manager Andrew Young at 208-886-7854 or Andrew.Young@itd.idaho.gov.
