Greensferry Overpass Nearing Reality in Post Falls, Idaho


Greensferry Rd & I-90
It looks like Greensferry overpass in the city of Post Falls, Idaho could become a reality in the next two years.  Greensferry Road  is between the Seltice Way overpass and Highway 41.  The overpass location would be on Greensferry Rd intersecting I-90.

"Greensferry looks really promising now, sooner rather than later" Post Falls Mayor Clay Larkin in a statement to the Coeur d'Alene Press. "I can see if we get all the wrinkles ironed out starting construction in a year or so."  

The overpass would improve traffic and pedestrian circulation and emergency response and provide another much-needed connection between the north side of Post Falls and the south side.

Funding issues still have to be worked out, but it looks as though the Greensferry overpass could come to fruition sooner than expected.
