Southern Idaho is ideally located in the mountain west. The state capital, Boise, is located just about 115 miles northwest and Salt Lake City about 230 miles southeast. To the west, Interstate 84 provides direct access to Boise, Portland, and Seattle via connection to I-82 and I-90. The primary access to the eastern US is provided by I-84 viz the connection with I-15, which in turn connects with I-80 at Salt Lake City. I-80 is one of the major US east-west interstate routes extending from New York to San Francisco.
US Highway 93 is the major north-south highway route through the area. From the south, US 93 enters Twin Falls County at the Nevada state line traveling north throughout the City of Twin Falls crossing the Snake River Canyon via the Perrine Bridge to connect with I-84 in Jerome County, about three miles north of Twin Falls. US 93 also connects with I-80 about 120 miles south of Twin Falls at Wells, Nevada.
Local businesses find that thanks to the interstate availability their goods/products are only a one-day truck route to Oregon, Washington, Utah, and Nevada. Products can also reach California, Colorado, and Arizona in just two short days as well.
