Construction on State Highway 44 Canal Crossing in Middleton begins in late September
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will begin construction of a new canal crossing at State Highway 44 between 1st Avenue and Dewey Avenue in late September
The existing canal crossing is deteriorated and needs to be replaced to maintain safety and mobility for Middleton residents and the traveling public.
ITD will build the project in stages to reduce impacts to motorists. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained during construction and access to local businesses will remain open.
Here’s what to expect in the next few weeks:
Late-September – Mid-October
Crews remove sidewalk on north side of State Highway 44 and place temporary pavement
Traffic shifts to the north
Work occurs on the south side of State Highway 44
Demolition of the existing crossing as soon as the canal is dry
The project is scheduled to be complete in mid-spring 2019.
ITD will continue to update the public about the project. If you have questions, please email: Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 208.334.8938.
