Projects

Granite NorthThis $15 million project is a continuation of ITD’s investment in safety and mobility improvements to US-95 at Granite Hill north of Athol.

Currently the project is in the early design stage. ITD will conduct one-on-one meetings with individual property owners adjacent to the project and host a public open house on July 31, 2018.


Open House on Tuesday, July 31

4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Athol Community Center
30355 North 3rd Street | Athol, Idaho


The project will:
  • Add frontage roads along US-95 from just south of Homestead Rd. to Trails End Rd.
  • Improve the Trails End Road intersection by realigning the new frontage road connections to be perpendicular to the highway.

ITD is developing this project to utilize the Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) transportation bond funding source.

Any questions can be emailed to US95Corridor@itd.idaho.gov or directed to the district office at (208) 772-1200.

ID-53 InterchangeITD will reconfigure several roadways near the junctions of ID-53 and Garwood Road with US-95 north of Hayden. Improvements are part of a larger vision to improve traffic flow and enhance safety on a local and regional level for present and future users along US-95 between Garwood Road and Sagle.

Open house to be held Wednesday, August 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the district office in Coeur d’Alene.

The proposed project will:

  • Construct a new interchange at US-95 and ID-53.
  • Realign and widen ID-53 from Ramsey Road to US-95.
  • Replace the existing deficient ID-53 bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR).
  • Construct an overpass at Garwood Road over US-95 and the UPRR, eliminating direct access to US-95 at Garwood Road.
  • Construct a new east-side frontage road from ID-53 to Garwood Road.
  • Construct an assortment of connector roadways.
  • Extend the pedestrian and bike facilities through the project.

Design and construction are expected to cost $41 million. ITD is developing this project to utilize the Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) transportation bond funding source.

Any questions can be emailed to US95Corridor@itd.idaho.gov or directed to the district office at (208) 772-1200.

During the next few years, US-95 will be reconstructed through town, first between Kootenai River Bridge and Alderson Lane (Stage 1), and then between Alderson Lane and Labrosse Hill Street (Stage 2). Both stages are expected to be completed by 2022.

A public hearing was held on January 25, 2018, to share information about the expansion of Idaho Highway 41 from Prairie Avenue to Boekel Road. ITD collected public comments to become part of the project record from January 25 to February 8, 2018.

For more project details and contact information go to:


The proposed ID-41: Prairie Avenue to Boekel Road Project include:

  • Widening the roadway to a divided, four-lane highway
  • Reconstructing the roadway surface
  • Replacing the signal at Hayden Avenue
  • Adding turn lanes and signals at Lancaster Road and Nagel Lane
  • Constructing a railroad overpass between Hayden and Wyoming avenues
  • Removing the railroad crossing between Prairie and Hayden avenues
  • Building a pedestrian underpass near Nagel Lane
  • Constructing a multi-use pathway along the east side of the highway

Critical repair work was completed in December 2016 on the U.S. 95 Long Bridge in Sandpoint. Crews structured the work in a effort to allow two-way traffic and pedestrian access. This was an interim step until a large-scale maintenance project can be designed and constructed around 2018. The cost of this initial work was $2 million, while the full repairs are estimated at approximately $16 million.

D-1 Long Bridge This first-phase effort completed necessary repairs while also helping determine the magnitude of repairs needed for the second phase. Crews resealed the roadway bridge deck with epoxy to protect the surface against water and weather damage, replaced bearing pads and repaired patches on the bridge, along with preservation work on the piles and sealing joints on both structures.

The epoxy work was the best short term solution to seal the bridge deck to keep it from eroding. It is a rougher surface than regular repaving and is the best short term solution to keep the deck from coming apart. Also, to maintain two lines of traffic during construction, the epoxy was laid down in thirds versus each lane at a time. This left two seams in the roadway versus just one right down the middle. If it was sealed each lane at a time, ITD would have to close the bridge for long periods of time.

The work that was done will help ITD determine the best way to manage traffic flows during construction and determine the structural and deck work that needs to be done on the next phase. The project could start as soon as next spring and will have a strong economic impact on Bonner County.

Planning

CDA Lake Drive

Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive Corridor Master Plan

Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is in the process of evaluating the possibilities of transferring jurisdictional control of Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive (Sherman Ave. to Higgins Point, hereafter referred to as “the corridor”) to a local entity or entities. ITD has been collaborating with several local entities including East Side Highway District (ESHD), Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR), and the City of Coeur d’Alene (City) as potential receipts of jurisdictional control.

Coeur d’Alene (CDA) Lake Drive was designated US Route 10 in 1927 and operated as a highway until I-90 was completed in the early 1990s. Now CDA Lake Drive functions as a local road and ITD is interested in transferring CDA Lake Drive jurisdiction to a local government entity (or entities) to improve operations, maintenance, and management. ITD is organized and equipped to efficiently manage and maintain roads and highways with higher traffic volumes and needs to use its limited resources on these facilities. ITD decided to evaluate options for transferring jurisdiction to a local entity (or entities) because it is likely that a local entity (or entities) can operate the road at a higher level of maintenance and responsiveness at a lower cost and make better local decisions affecting the community. ITD has a limited amount of funding to provide a one-time payment to a local entity (or entities) to take over jurisdiction.

ITD selected Welch Comer Engineers of Coeur d’Alene to complete a Master Plan of the roadway to determine its current condition, estimate future maintenance costs, and also evaluate opportunities for potential additional public uses and enhancements within the corridor. This information has been presented to the local entities for their consideration and was presented at a public meeting on May 5, 2016 in Coeur d’Alene.

ITD’s objective with completing the evaluation is to objectively analyze CDA Lake Drive’s current condition, needed repairs and on-going operation and maintenance needs. This information can be used by local entities to evaluate accepting the CDA Lake Drive jurisdiction.

ITD is considering funding necessary road maintenance and improvements to reduce future maintenance costs for local entities that may take jurisdiction. ITD’s goal is for a local entity, that is best equipped to cost effectively manage and operate the corridor to the highest level of maintenance and can best serve the community’s expectation of function and use of the road, to take over jurisdiction. If local entities do not take over jurisdiction, ITD will only be able to provide a minimal level of maintenance necessary to keep the road safe.
