Practice your deep breathing folks, because the project to repave five miles of US 95 through Coeur d'Alene and Hayden starts this saturday night (April 12). The good news; most of the work will be done overnight to minimize delays to drivers. Crews will work Sunday through Thursday, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. It may be necessary to close one lane through the work zone area, but the contractor will leave one lane open for traffic at all times.
The top layer of the old roadway surface will be removed and replaced with a new, curb-to-curb, full-width asphalt surface. The project also includes intersection upgrades, sidewalks, and new curb and gutter work. The intersection improvements may require closure of some intersections during work hours making detours necessary. Intersections will be reopened each day after 6 a.m. (during daylight hours).
The project is expected to be completed by the end of September.
