An expanded highway will help meet the growing traffic demands on this highly-used corridor between Rathdrum and Post Falls.
One mile of two-lane highway will be expanded to four lanes. It will be divided by either a 50-foot median or a small curb. A path will be constructed to the east of the highway.Read More
Improvements from Mullan Avenue in Post Falls to Boekel Avenue in Rathdrum are scheduled to be constructed in 2020 and 2021. The existing highway will essentially become the southbound lanes of the new highway, allowing much of the work to be constructed with minimal impact.
Once work starts, traffic will continue to run on the current lanes while two new lanes and the railroad overpass are built to the east. Once those lanes are finished, traffic will be moved onto that section while the old section is reconstructed.
More details will become available before construction.
