Impacts will change beginning Monday, August 7, in the work zone to upgrade the I-90 and State Highway 41 Interchange in Post Falls as work shifts to Seltice Way. The $78 million project is funded through Governor Little’s Leading Idaho program and is in its second year of construction.
Changes to traffic impacts include:
- Only one eastbound lane on Seltice Way will be open between Herborn Place and Ross Point Road. It will be shared by both through and turning traffic. This is expected to increase congestion for drivers heading north on SH-41 or east on I-90.
- Two westbound lanes on Seltice Way will be open between Herborn Place and Ross Point Road. Those lanes will be shared by both through and turning traffic.
- Two new temporary signals at the intersections of Seltice Way with Herborn Place and Ross Point Road will be turned on early next week. The permanent signals in the area will be deactivated and removed.
- Drivers will not be able to access Seltice Way from Herborn Place for the next two months.
- Left turns from Ross Point Road onto Seltice Way will be prohibited.
Drivers will still be able to access the freeway but should plan for congestion.
“Next week is a major shift in impacts and really the first time we will be closing lanes on Seltice Way,” Project Manager Shannon Stein said. “Travelers will still be able to access local businesses on the route.”
Bicycle and pedestrian pathways will remain open with occasional detours when necessary.
This phase of work on Seltice Way is expected to be complete by the fall of 2023. Crews will transition back Seltice Way to align it with the new I-90/SH 41 Interchange later in construction.
Crews continue to build temporary and permanent bridges on I-90. All construction is anticipated to be done in 2025. To learn about the future I-90/SH-41 interchange and how it will function, watch this video.

Governor Little’s Leading Idaho initiative allowed the project to begin one year earlier than expected and has enabled ITD to address rapid growth and build critical infrastructure today across the state that would otherwise take many years to fund and build.
