Idaho Materials & Construction completed the SH-44, INT SH-16 to Linder Road project in Treasure Valley, Idaho. Improvements to the 2.3-mile section of the highway were needed as this area is heavily traveled, seeing up to 23,000 cars daily, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. The existing roadway could only accommodate one travel lane in each direction, causing heavy congestion. This project minimized congestion by incorporating two travel lanes in each direction, providing better mobility for those traveling through the area.
Construction took place in three phases to minimize traffic impacts.
Phase 1: Place temporary asphalt on the south side of SH-44
Phase 2: Construct the permanent widening of the road’s north side
Phase 3: Finish by building the permanent south side of the road
Improvements to this highway were constructed quickly and with minimal impacts. The surrounding community is very appreciative of the hard work and efforts of the Idaho Materials & Construction team!
