A continuous center turn lane will allow drivers to safely turn off the highway without impeding thru traffic.
Right turn lanes will be added at select intersections, which will be determined after further analysis of crash data and turning movements.

A series of projects in 2022 and 2025 will widen and reconstruct ID-53 between the state line and Rathdrum, with a new interchange at Pleasant View Road planned in 2026. There are no plans to modify four miles between Bruss Road and Latah Street as they do not experience as many crashes at intersections.
Widening the highway will improve safety for turning drivers. Corridor improvements total more than $40 million.corridor fact sheet
