ITD Projects GARVEE D1 US 95 Garwood to Sagle Corridor US 95 Garwood to Sagle, Idaho 53 to Ohio Match
U.S. 95, Garwood to Sagle, Idaho 53 to Ohio Match
Project Number: A11(010)
This project consists of the reconstruction and realignment of approximately 2.91 miles of U.S. 95 from MP 438.24 to MP 441.15 in Kootenai County. Improvements include construction of 2.91 miles of divided highway, drainage modifications, construction of traffic signals at Idaho 53 and Garwood Road, realignment of shared use path (pedestrian/bike), and traffic counter relocation.
U.S. 95 is the key north-south link for northern Idaho commerce, transportation, and tourism. Rapid growth in Bonner and Kootenai counties has caused traffic volumes to approach the capacity of the highway. The corridor between Garwood and Sagle needs to be improved in order to safely accommodate projected traffic.
The EIS includes 31.5 miles of U.S. 95 to a four-lane divided highway with interchange access only. Frontage roads and improvements to local roads will provide access to adjacent properties. The selected U.S. 95 alignment (Modified Brown Alternative) follows the existing highway, alignment except for short segments in Athol and Westmond. Interchanges will be constructed at 12 locations along the corridor. The above map shows the corridor and the map can be found in the newsletter for August 2010 (click on Newsletter: August 2010).

Final design and right-of-way acquisition were completed in May 2008. Construction began in August 2008 and reached substantial completion in September 2009.
