The Idaho Transportation Department is proposing to reconstruct and widen portions of U.S. 30 in Cassia County from Parke Avenue in Burley west through the 400 West Road intersection. The project is funded for construction in 2019.

BURLEY — The Idaho Department of Transportation will hold an open house Jan. 31 in Burley so the public can look at the final plans for the U.S. Highway 30 project.

The public will be able to review and comment on the proposed changes to a 3.25-mile section of the highway from 4 to 6 p.m. at Burley City Hall, 1401 Overland Ave., in the Council Chambers.

The improvements to the road between 400 W. Road and Parke Avenue include widening the highway to two through lanes in each direction, widening the shoulders, installing turn bays at public roads, rebuilding irrigation structures that are affected and revamping business and private access from the road along with adding lighting at identified intersections.

The work includes putting in a traffic signal at Washington Street and the Bedke Boulevard intersection with the highway.

Members of the project team will be on hand to discuss the road safety improvements and what can be expected during the construction.

Construction will be funded in 2019.
