US95 Study Recommendations On KMPO Board Agenda

The KMPO Board meeting is this Thursday, and one of the agenda items is approval of recommendations from the US95 Access Management Study. KMPO has been studying US95 from I90 through Coeur d’Alene and Hayden to address intersection safety and congestion problems and identify inexpensive solutions that can be implemented in the short term (within five years).

Study recommendations include adding and removing traffic signals, adding turn lanes, and restricting turning movements at various locations on the corridor. If approved by the KMPO Board, the study recommendations will be forwarded to the Idaho Transportation Board for approval.

Here is more study info and the study report.

If you want to sit in, the meeting is Feb. 5 at 1:30 p.m. at the Idaho Transportation Department District 1 Headquarters Office, District Conference Room, 600 W. Prairie Avenue in Coeur d’Alene.
