Just before the July 4th weekend, ITD painted lanes on Idaho 55 from north of Horseshoe Bend to north of Smiths Ferry. Right after the 4th, ITD chip-sealed about 35 miles of the same road, thus destroying the lane paint. With the funding problems the last few years, it seems like a little advance planning would be in order so the lane-painting would not have to be done twice over a period of less than a month.
