Eclipse Traffic Expected to be Intense: We Will Help You Navigate
We're just days away from the total eclipse on Monday, and already, Oregon has seen intense traffic trouble. We're expecting it here too, and ready to help you navigate your way around it.
In addition to our usual Traffic Now reports 5 a.m. through 9 a.m. and 4 p.m to 6 p.m, we're going continue our coverage between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. You can count on us to provide the latest updates and help you get where you're going with as little delay as possible.
If our Idaho roads back up as expected, it could present interruptions to deliveries, could see gas supplies dwindling, and could mean a lot more time to get where you're going.
The Idaho Statesman looked into the delays and challenges drivers in Oregon were already experiencing over the last couple days. In once instance, there were 30 mile backups as participants made their way to an eclipse-themed festival.
Don't forget, you can keep up on road conditions and advisories by calling 511 throughout the State of Idaho, or checking out the website 511.idaho.gov.
You can also download the Idaho 511 Mobile App, for your iPhone or for your Droid.
