[ARCHIVED] Idaho Street to be closed between March 16 and April 1, 2020.


Over the last several years, there have been wastewater service interruptions at the Idaho Potato Museum. These interruptions are due to the fact that the existing 6-inch clay line, which is too small to be serviced by the City’s Wastewater Collections Department, is irreparable and continues to decay. As a result, a project is underway to replace this line with a City-standard 8-inch high density polyethylene line (HDPE).

The work, which is being performed by DePatco, Inc., will begin on Monday, March 16, 2020. At that time, construction crews will bore a tunnel under Highway 91 for installation of the new line. As such, from approximately March 16, 2020 to April 1, 2020, Idaho Street between Broadway and Highway 91 will be closed to traffic.

Although there may be some barricades in the parking lot, the Idaho Potato Museum will remain open throughout the construction period. Drivers should be extremely cautious and aware of construction vehicles and workers as they drive through the area. Should you have questions regarding the construction, please contact Kyle Jones, at 208-785-2977.
