The Idaho Transportation Department says two-way traffic will switch this Friday (Aug. 20) to the new northbound lanes on U.S. 95 from Wyoming Avenue to Idaho 53.
West Lancaster Road will be closed and Lancaster between U.S. 95 and Government Way will be re-opened. East- and westbound Boekel Road also will be re-opened.
Crews have finished the two-lane northbound section and median. Construction on the southbound lanes will begin Monday, Aug. 23.
The speed limit will be reduced to 45 miles per hour at all times through the length of the project corridor.
The project is funded with savings from federal highway stimulus projects bid earlier this year. The project is expected to be finished by this October.
