Karcher (SH55) and Midway Intersection Improvement
Karcher (SH55) and Midway Intersection Improvements
The City of Nampa and the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) are working together to improve the intersection of State Highway 55 and Midway Road. This intersection is on one of the highest accident corridors in the state. The Idaho Transportation Department will widen both legs of Midway Road to three lanes, including left turn bays. Karcher Road (SH55) will be widened to five lanes near the intersection including left turn bays and wider shoulders. The City of Nampa is working in partnership with ITD to extend water lines within the construction area extents.
ITD hopes to complete this project during the summer and fall of 2017 but may need to delay until 2018 due to the number of construction projects this summer.
