The Idaho Transportation Department is hosting an open house 2-8:30 p.m. today at the Best Western Plus University Inn where public comment will be taken regarding its plans to reroute U.S. Highway 95 from Thorncreek Road to Moscow and a recently published draft environmental impact statement for the project.
ITD spokesman Adam Rush said there will be technical and project staff with ITD available to answer questions along with additional informative literature. There are western, central and ITD-preferred eastern realignment routes being considered with open mic times for comment at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. There will also be areas to leave written comments.
The public statements are part of the process as we move forward with this project,” Rush said. “We really encourage people to show up and give us their input and comments.”
