U.S. 95, Garwood to Sagle, Chilco Area

Project Facts:

Project Number: A009(780)
Key Number: 09780
Milepost: 441.2 to 445.2

This project constructed approximately 4 miles of four-lane highway on U.S. 95 with limited at-grade intersections, one new interchange, a wildlife crossing, and frontage and backage roads for access management.


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). For more detailed maps, click on the maps that accompany the Record of Decision.


Preliminary design was completed in July 2008, and final design and right-of-way acquisition was completed in April 2011. Construction began in July 2011, with substantial completion in August 2013.
