SHOSHONE — Comment on proposed road reconstruction at an open house between 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Idaho Transportation Department District 4 Office, 216 S. Date St., Shoshone. Review plans for a 4.7-mile section of U.S. 26 west of Shoshone — from Ohlinger Road to the U.S. 26/U.S. 93 junction. Improvements will include removing asphalt, regrading the road base and repaving.

There will also be plans for work in the city of Shoshone — including repairing and replacing the storm-water system, installing new ADA-compliant sidewalk approaches, and work at the Apple Street railroad crossing. Temporary closures of sidewalks and city streets will be necessary.
