U.S. 95, Pavement Rehabilitation

Fast Facts

Location: U.S. 95, milepost 242 to 251, Idaho County

Why it Matters

The rehabilitation project rebuilded a segment of heavily traveled U.S. 95 between Grangeville and Cottonwood. The existing surface had deteriorated to a point that replacement from the base was required to ensure safe, smooth travel for motorists.

U.S. 95 is Idaho’s primary north-south route and carries commercial products, agricultural products, recreational vehicles and general traffic. Improving this segment of U.S. 95 is part of the Idaho Transportation Department’s long-term investment in the major highway from the Oregon border to the Canada border.

Project Description

A nine-mile segment of U.S. 95 that meets a section of concrete highway near the Cottonwood city limit, was rebuilt with a process known as CRABS – Cement Recycled Asphalt Base Stabilization. The existing surface was removed, ground to aggregate size and then reapplied to the highway as a base for a new surface. Work originally was planned for Fiscal Year 2012 but was advanced in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program with the availability of federal stimulus funds.
