Why it Matters

"Designating some of the savings from stimulus projects to this heavily traveled segment of U.S. 95 makes good sense," said Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter. "Funneling traffic from four lanes to two lanes in this short section creates a real safety risk that needs to be eliminated."

"It is critical that we not have a two-lane bottleneck between two four-lane sections of highway. By building this project and closing the gap, we are reducing congestion, preventing accidents and positioning the region for future economic development."

Project Description

The project widened a two-lane section of U.S. 95, between Wyoming Avenue and the Idaho 53 junction to connect with four-lane segments on both sides. Widening the small segment of highway created four continuous lanes from Coeur d'Alene to north of Garwood.
