Highway 20 road construction

U.S. Highway 20 resurfacing in Island Park will begin Monday, July 11, and is scheduled for completion in late September.
Idaho Transportation Department crews will resurface an 18-mile stretch between Pinehaven Drive and Island Park Lodge. Weather permitting, they also will seal coat 26 miles between Sheep Falls Road and Island Park Lodge.
Resurfacing consists of removing the worst sections of pavement and replacing them the same day. The road will then be paved with new asphalt. Travel will be reduced to one lane, with flaggers directing traffic through the work zones. Motorists can expect delays and reduced speed limit.
Construction will begin as early as 6 a.m. and run as late as 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
Commercial drivers transporting permitted loads wider than 14 feet need to obtain special authorization from ITD to pass through the construction zone.
