Update as of June 3, 2019 at 1:30 p.m.:
A temporary signal will be in place by the end of the week at US-95 and Kathleen Avenue in Coeur d’Alene.
While the signal is being installed, drivers can expect intermittent lane closures on the highway and Kathleen Avenue. Once in place, the temporary signal will allow all normal movements.
At this time a permanent structure will be included with other scheduled highway improvements.
Traffic on the highway is currently free flowing with stop signs on Kathleen Avenue. Right turns off and onto the highway are the only turns allowed.
Drivers are not able to make left turns or cross the highway at the intersection. Instead, drivers are advised to use Government Way and Ramsey Road to access the nearest signals on US-95 at Dalton and Neider avenues. View a map of the area.
Traffic will likely remain in this configuration for a few months. ITD is investigating the structural integrity of the signal’s bases and exploring intermediate options to replace the structure. Signal replacements of this kind typically take time to fix as these structures are often custom-built and expensive to keep on hand.
A permanent fix will likely be incorporated into construction already planned for the next two summers on US-95 in CDA. Learn more about that work by visiting itdprojects.org/us95intersections.
