ITD and ESHD to collect comment on bridges near Cataldo

The Idaho Transportation Department and East Side Highway District will host an open house on Tuesday, Sept. 21. The meeting will provide an opportunity for individuals to comment on plans for bridges on I-90 and Canyon Road near Cataldo.

ITD plans to replace the structures on I-90 over the Coeur d’Alene River near milepost 40 in 2024. The bridges were built in 1964 and have reached the end of their design life. ESHD is exploring alternatives for the future of the Canyon Road Bridge located 400 feet upstream, which was built in 1936.

“Given the proximity of the aging structures, we are combining resources so that the highway district can determine the feasibility of replacing their bridge while we replace and widen the I-90 structures,” ITD Project Manager Erica Aamodt said.

The open house will be held in Kellogg at the Shoshone County Fire District 2 located at 911 Bunker Avenue. Individuals are welcome to stop by anytime from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to view displays and speak with members of the project team who will be available to answer questions on both projects. Masks will be provided and are encouraged for attendees.

For those who would rather learn and comment about the projects online, visit after the meeting. Comments will be accepted through October 5.
