The westbound off-ramp at Exit 7 on Interstate 90 will close for pavement work and repairs tonight (June 18) and Monday (June 23) from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. as part of a project to improve I-90 from the Washington state line through Coeur d'Alene. Crews will waterproof the bridge deck and pave the interstate road surface. Work is being done at night to lessen the potential impacts to the traveling public.
In addition to the new pavement, bridge decks will be repaired. The entire length of the project will be restriped using a highly reflective, long-lasting polymer. It is more durable than the standard, water-based paint normally used for striping pavement surfaces.
Traffic on the interstate will be reduced to one lane through the work zone. The speed limit has been lowered to 55 mph. Motorists should plan on using an alternate route. Additional access to and from the freeway is located at the Seltice Boulevard and Spokane Street exits.
The project is expected to be completed by mid-July.
