Closures planned next week for US-30 widening project in Cassia County

SHOSHONE--Two closures are expected next week in relation to the construction on US-30 from N 400 West to Parke Avenue in Burley.

'This project has been underway since February, and we are expected to finish later this year,' said ITD Project Manager Kenny Lively. 'We are transitioning four miles of the roadway from a two-lane to a four-lane highway which will enhance safety and increase mobility in the area.'

During the closures, crews will construct new approaches on the roadway. Utilities work will also occur during this time.

The first closure is scheduled for Monday through Tuesday (August 17-18). Access from 200 W to US-30 will be closed to traffic during this time.

The second closure is scheduled to take place Wednesday through Friday (August 19-21). Access from Washington Avenue to US-30 will be closed to traffic during this time.

Drivers should exercise caution and watch for signs which will be in place to safely direct motorists through the area.

Western Construction Inc. is the prime contractor for this project.
