Project overview

This project will improve safety by constructing an interchange at ID-53 and Pleasant View Road. The highway will be shifted north to accommodate on- and off-ramps without interfering with the two existing (and a future third) railroad tracks, and Pleasant View Road will be expanded to four lanes and be elevated over the railroad tracks.

After construction, approaches at Hauser Lake Road, Hollister Hills Road, Beck Road and McGuire Road will be closed and then rerouted to tie into the new interchange, rather than directly to the highway.

Grant application

The Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization helped ITD and others apply for a federal grant to construct the interchange and an overpass at Ramsey Road and the railroad tracks. The projects were combined for a joint grant application. This project was not selected in the latest round, but the department has resubmitted the project in the hopes of constructing it before its current scheduled time in 2025. Agencies will be notified of selected projects in summer 2019.

As part of the department’s process of balancing the highway demands of the northern five counties and the associated budget, this project was delayed from 2025 to 2026. In July, the department’s plan and schedule for projects in the region will be available for comment at
