U.S. 95, Garwood to Sagle Environmental Study


Project Facts:

Project Number: A009(779)
Key Number: 09779
MP 438.2 to 469.7

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is developing plans for the reconstruction of U.S. 95 between the areas of Garwood and Sagle in northern Idaho.

Background:

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 can be found in the newsletter for August 2010 (click on Newsletter; August 2010). For more detailed maps, click on the maps that accompany the Record of Decision.

Schedule:

Due to the length of the project and the total estimated cost, it is being constructed in phases. Each phase is constructing elements of the ultimate design until the four lane facility is complete.
