Red Cap Corner Public Info Meeting


By Joey Martin

Kimberly, Idaho (KMVT-TV) On Thursday residents of Kimberly were giving the chance to voice their questions and concerns about the upcoming changes to Rep Cap Corner.

For the past 5 years the City of Kimberly and the Idaho Department of Transportation have been working to completely remodel the Red Cap Corner intersection, just north of Kimberly.

Thursday, a public information meeting was held to show local residents what the project will look like, when it will start, how long it will take to complete, and what will be some of the new additions to the intersection.

"Were going to be installing a traffic signal there. Well also be installing emergency vehicle signals. As part of the signal we will be putting in advance signal warning flashing signs, like what you have at Hankins road. And we will also be redoing the free–sweeping right turn that goes from east bound traffic to south bound."

The entire project is estimated to run around 600 to $700,000 and will be paid for by the Idaho Transportation Department.

Work on the intersection is slated to start in early May of 2013.

Construction should last around 60 days.
