South Johns Avenue project in second phase

Emmett—Construction is being done in phases on South Johns Avenue. This work is rehabilitating the roadway from 4th St to 12th St.

Currently construction is moving from first phase into second phase. There may be intermittent road closures due to utilities being moved out of road way.

Construction Phases:

  1. Phase will be from E 4th Street to the north side of E 7th Street.

  2. Phase will be from E 7th Street to the entrance of Meadow View Assisted Living.

  3. Phase will start past the entrance of Meadow View Assisted Living to E 12th Street.


Please be patient as we keep traffic moving while work is underway. Motorists are advised to watch for flaggers or signage that will be present to direct traffic through the work zone.


The contractor will be paving the roadway the last week in October due to a delay in the removal of power poles from the roadway. Every attempt is being made by the contractor to get back on schedule.


If you have any questions call Clint Seamons Public Works Director at 208-365-9569 ext. 7. He can provide an update on the project that is being completed by a the consultant and the contractor.
