I rode to Idaho City yesterday, talked with some nice guys on BMW's and they gave some grim news. This is from the Idaho Transportation Website: SH 55: at Garden Valley Road roadway reduced to one lane, delays, paving operations -- pilot car in operation ? until August 8 last updated July 19 This project is a chip seal project on the Banks to Lowman Highway (Milepost 0.0 - 25.05). The chip seal is the full length of the highway. Pilot Cars will be used on this project. expect delays of 15 to 30 minutes. Granted, this should only be until August 8th ** :lies:**, but if they do it right, it could be nice... but if they do a terrible job... well... then, I'd have to think its a Boise County Sherrif's office conspiracy. I don't know about anybody else, but when my neighborhood was chip sealed, they didn't bother to flatten the gravel out, so now the road looks even worse, with ripples and ridges in the pavement. That's certainly something we don't want on that nice little stretch, and if its all crappy, I won't take the chance of flying down that stretch of highway.
