Upgrades to US-95 in Bonners Ferry to begin next week

Traffic on US-95 in Bonners Ferry near Eisenhower Street

A two-year project will begin Monday, April 4, to extend the three-lane section on U.S. Highway 95 from Alderson Lane to Labrosse Hill Street in Bonners Ferry.

Drivers can generally expect a lane to be open in each direction. Most work will take place during the day, with some night work and detours possible as intersections and driveways are improved.

The first year of work is expected to wrap up in October and will focus on US-95 from Alderson Lane to Eisenhower Street.

After this project ends in 2023, this section of highway will also feature wider shoulders, sidewalks on both sides, new lighting and updated drainage.

Construction from 2018 to 2020 built similar improvements from the Kootenai River Bridge to Alderson Lane. Learn more about this project at itdprojects.org/us95bonnersferry.
