US-95: Granite North

This project will improve safety by expanding US-95 over Granite Hill, building frontages roads to consolidate access to the highway and realigning the Trails End Road intersection.

Major work won't start until 2021.

Latest design

Following the public meeting in July 2018, the design team made changes to the project to incorporate feedback, limit impacts and reduce costs.

Note that US-95 intersections with Mara Meadows, Granite Loop Road, Old House Road, Homestead Road and North Williams Lane (at the county line) will be closed and reconnected to frontage roads that will run parallel on both sides of the highway to safely intersect with Idaho Highway 54 or Trails End Road. East Williams Lane will be left as is.

Though not called out in the map, the existing graded gravel path at the south end of the project will be extended through so it can be paved at a later date.

Design update 2019


The project was awarded to M.A. DeAtly Construction, Inc. for $21 million in fall of 2020. Drivers could see equipment mobilized into the area during fall of 2020, but major work is not expected to begin until 2021.

Tentative staging plans include tree removal and blasting in 2021 and 2022 to make room for frontage roads, with the route to the east built in 2021 and the route to the west built in 2022. Improvements to mainline US-95 will be ongoing during 2022 and 2023. Drivers can expect two or three lanes through most of construction, which is set to end in fall of 2023.

At this time the schedule for closing several county road intersections with US-95 are not known. More details will become available before work starts in spring 2021.
