US 30 in Idaho
According to ablogtophone, US 30 is a US Highway in the US state of Idaho. The road forms an east-west route through the south of the state. The road has long double numberings with Interstate 84 and Interstate 86, but also has a number of its own sections. The route is 669 kilometers long.
The US 30 has two separate routes along I-84, the first part is from Fruitland to New Plymouth and follows the old route from Boise to Portland. The road then merges with I-84 and continues past Boise and only rejoins at Bliss, 206 kilometers southeast.
In Bliss the road turns off and then follows the course of the Snake River. The road initially heads south, but bends east from Buhl. This area is part of the large Snake River Plains, a large flat area in central southern Idaho. One then passes through Twin Falls, the largest town between Boise and Pocatello. This is where the US 93 crosses. The road then follows the course of the Snake River eastward, paralleling I-84 for some distance. At Rupert, the road merges back into I-84, only to be double-numbered for nearly the entire route with I-86.
In Pocatello, US 30 forms its own route through the city. The road continues through downtown and merges with US 91. The road then merges into I-15 for a 40-kilometer double numbering.
At McCammon, US 30 turns off again and then heads east through mountainous terrain with peaks of up to 2,500 meters. Then you reach a plateau at an altitude of about 1600 meters and you pass through the town of Soda Springs. The road then turns southeast and intersects with US 89 in Montpelier. The border with Wyoming follows shortly after . US 30 in Wyoming then continues towards Kemmerer.
US 30 was created in 1926. Several sections of US 30 have been replaced in Idaho by Interstate Highways, such as between Fruitland and Bliss, from Heyburn to Pocatello and a bit south of Pocatello. For the rest of the route, US 30 often parallels I-84. Only the easternmost part does not lead directly along other highways.
Every day, 10,800 vehicles drive at the Oregon border and 1,700 to 3,600 vehicles between Fruitland and I-84. From Bliss to Buhl, 2,000 to 2,800 vehicles run, increasing to 7,000 vehicles west of Twin Falls and 12,000 vehicles east of Twin Falls. This then quickly drops to 1,300 to 2,000 vehicles until Burley. The section through Pocatello has 8,000 to 13,000 vehicles. From I-15 to Montpelier, 4,500 to 5,000 vehicles and 1,200 vehicles run between Montpelier and the Wyoming border.
US 89 in Idaho
|Get started||Fish Haven|
According to beautyphoon, US 89 is a US Highway in the US state of Idaho. The road forms a short north-south link in the extreme southeast of the state. The route is 66 kilometers long.
At Fish Haven, on Bear Lake, US 89 in Utah from Logan enters the state of Idaho and then heads north along Bear Lake. The surrounding mountains reach up to 2800 meters, but the US 89 runs through a valley. The US 30 crosses in the small town of Montpelier. US 89 then veers east and reaches the border with Wyoming. US 89 in Wyoming then continues to Jackson.
US 89 was created in 1926, but was not yet passing through Idaho at the time. In 1934, the route was extended from Spanish Fork, Utah to Piegan, Montana, creating the current route through far southeast Idaho. US 89 is of little importance to Idaho.
Every day, 2,500 vehicles drive between the Utah border at Bear Lake and Montpelier and 600 to 800 vehicles between Montpelier and the Wyoming border.
US 91 in Idaho
US 91 is a US Highway in the US state of Idaho. The road forms a north-south route through the southeast of the state, from the Utah border through Pocatello to Idaho Falls. The route is 191 kilometers long.
US 91 near Franklin.
The road begins at Franklin, where US 91 in Utah enters the state from Logan. The road runs through a wide valley between two high mountain ranges at an altitude of about 1300 meters. The road runs through Preston to Interstate 15 near Virginia, where it merges with I-15. The road is then double numbered with I-15 to the south side of Pocatello, where the US 30 exit from Montpelier. Both roads then continue through downtown, where US 91 turns north and US 30 heads toward American Falls and Twin Falls via I-86. US 91 then crosses Interstate 86 and then parallels I-15 to the north. At Blackfoot, cross I-15 again and follow the road to US 26up to Idaho Falls through the valley of the Snake RIver. US 91 ends in Idaho Falls.
Created in 1926, US 91 began much further north in Great Falls, Montana and continued into California. With the completion of Interstate 15, US 91 was shortened several times, and in 1980 the section north of Idaho Falls was scrapped. Between Downey and Pocatello, US 91 runs directly over I-15, on other routes parallel to it, albeit at a longer distance in southern Idaho.
Every day, 6,200 vehicles drive between the Utah border and Preston, dropping to 1,300 to 1,700 vehicles between Preston and I-15 at Downey. From Pocatello there are 22,000 vehicles left, which drops to 2,700 vehicles towards Blackfoot. From Blackfoot to Idaho Falls, 3,400 to 11,000 vehicles drive.
