In an effort to bring needed transportation improvements immediately to US Highway 20/26 (Chinden Boulevard), Mayor Tammy has established a task force with the goal of reducing congestion, improving safety and creating economic opportunity. The task force is focused on engaging our community, legislators, and the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) to prioritize funding for additional travel lanes and widening intersections in this key east-west corridor. By investing in US 20/26, ITD can relieve the bottleneck in this area, make a connection to the Highway 16 extension that makes sense, and solve a problem that frustrates businesses and commuters alike.
