Official Release: Idaho 41 to close for railroad track repairs, beginning Aug. 20

COEUR d'ALENE - Idaho 41 at Hayden Avenue will be closed beginning Wednesday (Aug. 20), the Idaho Transportation Department announced. The closure is necessary while repairs are made to the Union Pacific Railroad track at milepost 4, north of Hayden Avenue.

The highway will be closed from Aug. 20 at 6 a.m. until Aug. 21 at 6 p.m. Motorists should plan on an alternate using Idaho 53 and U.S. 95, during the closure. Variable message signs are in place along Idaho 41 warning motorists of the upcoming closure.

Union Pacific work crews will remove track at the crossing just north of the intersection at Hayden Avenue and replace it with a new rock base and track.

ITD and the Idaho State Police warn motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and dial 5-1-1 or visit for information on the state highway or interstate system.
