US 95 Project Starts Today

Construction of the U.S. 95 Wyoming to Idaho 53 project started today. Crews will be working Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Lancaster Road, between U.S. 95 and Government Way, will be closed beginning Thursday (April 22) and will remain closed until further notice.

Two-way traffic will remain on the current highway lanes while the new northbound lanes and median are constructed. When finished, traffic will be switched over and construction will begin on the new southbound lanes.

Drivers can expect intermittent delays as traffic is stopped between Boeckel Road and Lancaster Road to allow truck traffic from the work site to cross the highway.

The project is funded with savings from federal highway stimulus projects bid earlier this year. The project is expected to be complete by this October.
