Pavement restoration on 12 miles of US-95, from the Payette north city limit to the Weiser River Bridge, will be substantially complete this week, reopening to normal traffic conditions prior to the Memorial Day weekend.

The project is designed to extend the life of the highway and provide a smoother ride. The Idaho Transportation Department appreciates everyone’s ongoing patience as it improves this important stretch of highway.

After the Memorial Day weekend and periodically during the summer, crews will return to complete minor follow-up work. Speed reductions and minor delays are anticipated during this time.

Western Construction is the contractor on this $6.1 million project. For up-to-date construction information, visit
