Knife River Returns To The Valley

Express photo by Willy Cook Knife River Corp. began this week applying a micro-seal surface coating to about seven miles of state Highway 75 between Hailey and Ketchum, work that was unfinished from a 2011 resurfacing project. The project will take place south from Ketchum to the bridge over the Big Wood River near St. Luke’s Wood River and north from Hailey to just north of East Fork Road. The Idaho Transportation Department advised that the work will last about two weeks and that “drivers should watch for lane restrictions, flaggers and delays throughout the project zone.” Detours onto McKercher Boulevard and Buttercup Road north of Hailey and between Serenade Lane and River Street in Ketchum may be used. A Knife River truck is shown here stockpiling material for the project near the intersection of Highway 75 and Ohio Gulch Road.
