Motorists can expect construction on U.S. Highway 95 this Monday as crews start resurfacing 13 miles between milepost 210 and Whitebird.

Work will restore the roadway and provide a smoother traveling surface to improve mobility through this vital corridor. Sections of guardrail will also be updated to current standards for enhanced safety.

Over the next few months, travelers can expect the following traffic shifts on US-95:

  • Mid-April through mid-May: One-lane closed during the day.
  • Mid-May through mid-July: One-lane closed during the day and night.
  • Mid-July through mid-October: One-lane closed during the day.

Drivers should reduce speed and be on the lookout for flaggers and/or pilot cars in operation. Wait times are estimated to be around 15 minutes but should not exceed 30 minutes.

The cost for the project is $17.3 million.
