SHOSHONE — As early as Monday, daytime traffic on Idaho 24 north of Rupert will be reduced to one lane to allow for the removal and installation of three pipe culverts. A portion of the road shoulder will be removed and rebuilt. Subject to weather conditions, work is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. Drivers should be prepared for short delays and watch for flaggers during working hours — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A larger rehabilitation project is expected to begin in August and will include additional pipe work, rock removal and sign replacement. The general contractor for the project is Western Construction Inc.
ITD and the Idaho State Police advise motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply.
