Highway Project to Close Highway Lane at Ohio Gulch
The Ohio Gulch area is about to get a highway makeover.
Sunday, November 14, 2021


Widening of Highway 75 will begin this week at Ohio Gulch Road north of Hailey.

A contractor for the Idaho Transportation Department will construct a right turn bay on the highway for northbound traffic turning onto Ohio Gulch Road.

Crews will also construct a northbound acceleration lane for motorists merging onto the highway from Ohio Gulch Road. Northbound traffic will be reduced to a single lane during construction.

The work is part of a larger project that will rehabilitate 5.7 miles of the crumbling highway from McKercher Boulevard to East Fork Road next spring.

Weather permitting, work is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving, said ITD District Engineer Jesse Barrus.


Idaho Transportation Department is responsible for maintaining and improving 12,315 miles of highways and roads throughout the state, as well as 1,830 bridges, 2,523 miles of Idaho Byways and 31 state backcountry airstrips. The state highway system also includes 31 rest areas and 12 fixed ports of entry.
