Caldwell: Learn more about Farmway Road/Idaho 44 improvements

The Notus-Parma Highway District No. 2 is holding an open house for the public to learn more about the Farmway Road/Idaho 44 improvements project.

The open house will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, at Caldwell Housing Authority Community Center, 22730 Farmway Road, Caldwell.

Project staff will be available to answer questions, provide information and receive comments. There will be a Spanish-speaking interpreter on site.

This project will provide a wider, smoother road surface and guard rail over two canal crossing on the farm-to-market truck route east of Notus and north of Caldwell.

A long history of heavy truck traffic has resulted in deteriorated pavement, crumbling pavement edges and bridge approach settling.

These improvements will provide a safer route for vehicles every day, eliminate the abrupt shoulder edges and bring two dangerous and sub-standard bridge crossings up to current safety standards.

Construction is scheduled to start in late 2017.

J-U-B ENGINEERS is creating the preliminary design for the improvements. Questions and comments should be directed to Bryant Kuechle with The Langdon Group, a public involvement subsidiary of J-U-B, at 739-3048 or bk@langdongroupinc.com. Comments will be accepted through Feb. 18.
