JEROME, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Highway 93 is growing, becoming a four-lane highway across a two mile stretch east of Jerome and north of Twin Falls.

Construction is ongoing on adding two lanes to a stretch of the highway from the Highway 25 intersection to just north of 100 South.

The goal of the project, which will continue into the summer, is to connect four ITD projects that will allow Highway 93 to more effectively serve the communities of Southern Idaho.

“This is just all to improve capacity and mobility and safety in the area,” said ITD spokesperson Jessica Williams. “We have been doing a widening project from just north of Twin Falls up to that area over the past several years and it will be a four-lane highway throughout that area.”

Williams expects the project to continue into the fall, with a projected completion around October.

She and ITD believe there will be little-to-no impact on commuters in the area while the project is underway.
