Idaho Gov. Brad Little has signed legislation to designate a roadway that crosses southern Idaho as the Idaho Medal of Honor Highway.
Little signed the bill earlier this month but held a special ceremony on Monday – National Medal of Honor Day – to mark the event involving U.S. Highway 20.
Backers say Idaho’s portion will be part of a larger plan to have the entire highway that begins in Newport, Oregon, and ends in Boston, Massachusetts, receive the designation.
In Idaho, the highway starts near Parma and ends on Targhee Pass where it enters Montana.
The estimated cost to the state is expected to be less than $30,000.
The House passed the bill 66-0 in February and the Senate 35-0 earlier this month.
