Paving planned between Labrosse Hill and Eisenhower Street

September 11, 2023

Beginning September 18, crews plan to begin a two-week daytime paving operation on U.S. Highway 95 between Labrosse Road and Eisenhower Street in Bonners Ferry. The most significant impacts are anticipated to be between September 18-28 when the continuous paving work will temporarily affect business and side road access while the asphalt mat is laid and cured in front of driveways. This process typically takes one to two hours and alternate access routes will need to be used during these times.

Throughout construction traffic will remain one lane in each direction with flaggers assisting to allow truck access.

This operation will be very dynamic and subject to change to accommodate unforeseen circumstances, but crews are doing their best to stay on schedule and minimize traffic impacts.

Significant closures, delays or changes will be broadcast via roadside electronic messaging boards staged throughout the work zone. Please pay attention to local signage or refer to Idaho 511 for real-time updates.

As always, drivers are urged to slow down through work zones and use caution for the safety of all. Drivers should also watch for large trucks entering or exiting the construction site.

"We appreciate your patience through this project and look forward to delivering a newly improved roadway to the community with an anticipated construction completion date set for mid-October," ITD officials said.
