Hurray for the person who made the decision to tell Idaho Department of Transportation not to close the highway in both directions at the same time. That person needs an award. Eleventh hour change of mind by IDT, don’t believe it. Of course, this could have been a ploy by IDT to strong-arm the state to get more money out of this mess. Making themselves out to be heroes, three more weeks won’t make a difference as long as the highway is not closed. And I guess that is the bottom line — the highway is open. Wish we knew who IDT answers to.
