No Left Turns At US 95 & Lancaster Starting Mar. 1

Take note: all left turns will be restricted at the intersection of U.S. 95 and Lancaster Road in Coeur d'Alene beginning March 1. The median crossing at the intersection will be closed while crews assemble and erect structures for a traffic signal.

Work requiring the left-turn restrictions is expected to take about one week to complete. When the span over the median is in place, the median will be reopened. Daily closures will occur as work progresses to install the U.S. 95 spans. The median will reopen at night.

Boekel Road is the designated detour route. Right turns onto Lancaster and onto U.S. 95 will be permitted.

Once installation is complete, the signal heads will be covered and will not become operational until the final layer of pavement and pavement striping are completed later this spring.

Signal and intersection work is part of a project to widen U.S. 95 between Wyoming Avenue and the Idaho 53 junction south of Garwood. Funding is provided through savings from other American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (federal stimulus) projects that were bid in 2010.
