This project is part of a larger vision to improve traffic flow and enhance safety for present and future users along US-95 between Garwood and Sagle.
ITD will reconfigure several roadways near the current US-95 junctions with ID-53 and Garwood Road north of Hayden.Read More
Some improvements to this area, such as the Garwood Road overpass, were first identified during the development of an environmental document to plan for the future traffic needs of the region. This document and proposed improvements 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.
In mid-2017, additional funding was secured through the GARVEE Program to design and construct the full interchange, Garwood Road overpass, frontage roads and connector roads.
