Starting on Thursday, August 17, 2017, the Idaho Department of Transportation has placed traffic counters all across the state that will monitor traffic flow including along the path of totality. We'll be able to see where to go and where NOT to go. ITD will get a count of how many cars are going into a specific area and release that information to us through message boards, social media and online.
- Thursday - Sunday: Updates once or twice daily
- Monday: Updates hourly
