As of August 24, 2010, the Ten Mile Road, Franklin Road to Cherry Lane project is complete, finishing ahead of schedule. Some minor Work may still occur within the project area in the weeks ahead. Construction began in December 2009.
Funded in part through new local vehicle registration fees, the project will widen Ten Mile Road from Franklin Road to Cherry Lane from two lanes to five lanes and will include curb, gutter sidewalks and bike lanes. The project also includes upgrading the traffic signal at the Ten Mile Road and Franklin Road intersection and placing a new traffic signal at the Ten Mile Road and Pine Avenue intersection. To accommodate the widening, new bridges will be built over Ten Mile Creek.
The interim signal project was partially funded by the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) as part of its temporary traffic control for detours associated with the removal and replacement of the Black Cat and Robinson bridges over the Interstate.
Other roadwork in the area:
Ten Mile between Franklin and Overland will be closed through May 2011 to allow the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) to construct the new Ten Mile Interchange.
