I-90 construction in Idaho to restrict traffic

| April 16, 2010

Traffic on Interstate 90 through Post Falls, Idaho, will be restricted beginning April 26 for a bridge rehabilitation project, the Idaho Transportation Department says.

I-90 will be reduced to one lane in each direction until about mid-June.

The project includes both eastbound and westbound bridges from the Washington State line to Spokane Street in Post Falls, covering about 4.6 miles of interstate.

From April 26 to May 3, one lane in each direction will be closed overnight, and re-opened during the day. Beginning May 4, one lane in each direction will be closed 24 hours for approximately 30 days. Once the bridge work is complete, night lane closures will continue for approximately 20 days to allow the contractor to pave and stripe the road surface in each direction. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.
