Meeting Planned Thursday In Wendell On Four Roadway Projects


By Paul Johnson

Wendell, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) – The public is invited to attend an open house Thursday, December 5, to discuss four roadway construction projects planned in the city of Wendell and in southern Gooding County beginning in late 2014 and lasting through 2015, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
The open house will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Wendell Housing Association, 105 West Avenue A in Wendell. ITD will present information about three projects on Idaho 46 and the Wendell Highway District, with its representatives, will hold a public hearing regarding a reconstruction project on Bob Barton Road (3500 South).
The projects planned include:
• Junction I-84 to Wendell north city limit: The project involves reconstructing Idaho 46 (Idaho Street) through the city of Wendell, improving Americans with Disabilities Act pedestrian ramps, and overlaying the Idaho 46 Spur (West Main Street).
• Bob Barton Road/Bridge: The project will replace the Cedar Draw canal bridge and intersection at the junction of Idaho 46 and Bob Barton Road (1950 East and 3500 South).
• Cedar Draw & W-9 Canal: The project will replace two aging structures over the W-9 Canal immediately south of Wendell and the Cedar Draw bridge on 3500 South near 1760 East.
The Bob Barton Road project will include information about its reconstruction from 1950 East to 2200 East Road. The federally funded project is administered by the Wendell Highway District and the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council. Testimony will be taken regarding the project, which will include a detour of through traffic during the work.
Staff from each agency will be on hand to discuss the work, answer questions and gather comments about each project and how each will impact traffic in the area.
