Vandals shoot ITD message board
Vandals damaged a dynamic message board along Interstate 84 near Mountain Home, leaving six bullet holes in the display area that will cost up to $8,000 to repair, the Idaho Transportation Department said.
The incident happened Sunday evening, Feb. 10, on the westbound side of the interstate just west of Mountain Home. The portable message board was warning of the possibility of wildlife in the area. A number of elk and deer, moving down from higher elevations to seek forage, have been hit by vehicles on the interstate. Anyone with information about the vandalism should contact the Elmore County Sheriff's Department, Idaho State Police or the Idaho Transportation Department.
