What will be the impact on traffic on US-20/26?
UAMPS has identified its preferred site within the boundaries of the Idaho National Laboratory. The 35-acre site is located about six miles south of the Lost River rest stop west of the intersection of U.S. Highways 20 & 26 and due north of EBR-1. Prior to construction, a traffic study will be conducted to assess the impact of construction and operations on local roads. This will be reviewed with appropriate local and state authorities. A traffic impact study is also required to be completed as a part of the Environmental Impact Statement to be prepared by UAMPS as a part of its Construction and Operating License Application.
