U.S. 95 is a major route through Coeur d’Alene, so if you drive there, you’ll want to know about a major shift coming to the highway. A paving project starts Wednesday, July 6 on 95 from Wyoming Avenue to Idaho 53 and is expected to be finished by September.
Traffic will be shifted from a divided four lane road to an undivided two lane road. Traffic will be rerouted at median crossovers placed at either end of the project.
The southbound lanes will be closed for paving for two to three weeks, and two-way traffic placed on the northbound lanes. When completed, traffic will be shifted again to the southbound lanes, and the northbound lanes will be paved.
Once paving is complete, the traffic signal at Lancaster Road will be activated.
The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph at all times through the length of the project corridor.
