Couple of lines for a question depending on the length

This project is part of a larger vision to improve traffic flow and safety along US-95 between Garwood and Sagle.

In the next three years, ITD will reconfigure several roadways near the current US-95 junctions with ID-53 and Garwood Road north of Hayden.

Tentative construction details

This year, the railroad bridge will be rebuilt on a new alignment, ID-53 will be widened west to Ramsey Road and the interchange will start construction by October. Because work will be off-system during the ID-53 realignment and bridge replacement, no impacts are expected. Once work on the interchange starts, ID-53 traffic will be detoured to Garwood Road. There will be no impacts to US-95 traffic. A temporary signal at ID-53 and Ramsey Road will be installed before the interchange detour starts and is expected to remain in place until a permanent signal can be installed in 2022.

In 2020, the interchange will be finished, and work on the frontage roads and Garwood Road overpass will begin. Building the overpass is expected to require several weeks of lane closures on US-95, but at least one lane in each direction will remain open. Direct access to US-95 will likely not be allowed after September.

In 2021, the Garwood Road overpass will be completed.

Project history

Some improvements to this area were first identified during the development of an environmental document to plan for the future traffic needs of the region, which were approved in 2010 after multiple open houses.

In 2017, an interim design was developed to realign and widen ID-53 between Ramsey Road and US-95. This design also included the replacement of the bridge over the railroad, the addition of a center turn lane and the extension of bike facilities from Ramsey Road to the trail east of US-95. Additional funding was secured through the GARVEE Program shortly after to design and construct the current design.
