SH-44; Linder Road to Ballantyne Lane Design-Build, Eagle, ID
SH-44; Linder Road to Ballantyne Lane was the first design-build project completed through the Innovative Contracting Unit at ITD. Horrocks partnered with Central Paving to design and build SH-44 from Linder Road to Ballantyne Lane. Horrocks performed the project design tasks, with Central Paving leading construction. The purpose of the project was to design, rebuild and improve SH-44 (State Street) from a three-lane to a five-lane roadway section and improve the intersection of SH-44 and Linder Road without impeding corridor functionality during construction.
I-86/Chubbuck Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI), Chubbuck, ID
Horrocks assisted ITD District 5 in the design of the first DDI in the state of Idaho. The Horrocks design team prepared the traffic signal and lighting plans as well as the construction phasing and traffic control plans for this ground-breaking project for ITD. Horrocks utilized its significant DDI design experience and resources in Utah to aid District 5 in the application of this new interchange technology. The design work included the design of the traffic signalization at the two “crossover intersections” on Yellow Stone Ave. as well as the interchange ramp termini intersections.
