Public-private Partnership Creates Economic Opportunities for East Idaho

One of the largest public-private partnerships in Idaho is moving forward after government and business leaders broke ground on the Northgate Project in East Idaho.


This project represents an unprecedented partnership between six public and private entities that will increase mobility and economic opportunity along the Interstate 15 corridor.


“This project presents a fantastic opportunity for not only Pocatello and Chubbuck but also all of East Idaho to grow and thrive into the future,” said Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad.


The partnership consists of the cities of Chubbuck and Pocatello, Bannock County, the Pocatello Development Authority, the Idaho Transportation Department, and Millennial Development.


In June, those partners signed an agreement that would build a new interchange on I-15 and new local roads to connect to the interstate.


The new infrastructure would open the north end of Pocatello and east Chubbuck to new development by way of a master planned community called Northgate. Once fully built, the project is expected to bring a new 1 million square foot IT park, retail businesses, and 10,000 new homes.


"This project kicks off a visionary transformation in the Portneuf Valley that will echo for generations," said project developer Buck Swaney.


Crews will begin some site work this fall with the majority of the construction expected to begin in spring 2018.
