Construction on railroad crossing will close a portion of Hwy 33 for 3 days

Construction on the railroad crossing on Idaho Highway 33 north of Sugar City will close the road Wednesday through Friday.

The road will be closed to through traffic from the junction with the Highway 20 Driggs-Jackson Exit to the intersection with Digger Drive. Crews from Eastern Idaho Railroad will replace planking at the railroad crossing and improve approaches.

If you plan to travel eastbound on U.S. 20 you should take the the Sugar-Salem exit to Idaho 33 and then follow detour signs.

ITD says the funding for the project is from the Idaho Transportation Department’s Rail Crossing Safety Fund, which helps finance railroad-crossing improvements for state and local roads. The $127,500 project is designed to improve safety and ride for motorists, while preserving road and track infrastructure.
