Road Surface Project Will Delay Motorists In Ketchum Area
Ketchum, Idaho (KMVT-TV) – A roadway resurfacing project near the Saddle Road intersection will limit traffic on Idaho 75 for two days starting Thursday Sept. 13, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
Drivers should watch for traffic delays and lane closures while crews first mill and then repave nearly a half mile of roadway north and south of the Saddle Road intersection. The project will replace the worst areas of rutted and deteriorated pavement near the intersection.
The road will be reduced to as little as one lane during working hours. Drivers should watch for flaggers and be prepared for delays up to 15 minutes. Saddle Road will be closed during milling and paving operations as the asphalt is placed and allowed to cool.
Depending on weather and roadway conditions, work is expected to begin on Thursday and be completed by Friday (Sept. 14). Drivers should consider using an alternate route during the project.
