Idaho 9 Pavement Rehabilitation

Fast Facts

Location: Idaho 9, milepost 7.3 to 13.5, south of Harvard
Cost: $1.3 Million
bullet Jobs Created / Sustained: 23

Why it Matters

Idaho 9 is a two-lane state highway that connects the communities of Deary and Harvard and is part of an eastern loop from Lewiston to Palouse, Washington. The pavement surface on the northernmost six miles of Idaho 9 is rated as poor according to the state’s highway deficiency index. A pavement overlay will extend the life of the highway and improve travel in rural north-central Idaho.

Project Description

A six-mile segment of Idaho 9, immediately south of Harvard in Latah County, will receive a two-inch pavement overlay to address deficiency issues. The project begins near Harvard and extends to Flat Creek. Work originally was planned for Fiscal Year 2012 but was advanced in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program with the availability of federal stimulus funds.
