Road Reconstruction To Begin Sunday North of Shoshone
Shoshone, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) If you drive Highway 75 North of Shoshone, beginning Sunday July 21st you'll notice a small detour.
Traffic will shift to the former alignment of a short section as a curve is reconstructed.
Work will begin Sunday at the Big Wood River Bridge near milepost 77 about 2 miles North of Shoshone.
The construction is in response to concerns raised about the safety of traveling through a curve in the roadway.
During the roadwork, traffic will divert to the old road for about one half-mile.
Speed will be reduced to 35 MPH through the work zone.
Reconstruction is expected to be completed in about 2 weeks.
