COEUR D’ALENE, ID. — The Idaho Transportation Department is inviting the public to two open houses to present ideas on how to improve I-90.

They will show recommended designs to help improve I-90 between the Washington state line and Sherman Avenue in Coeur d’Alene.

Some of the proposed improvements include adding lanes on I-90, changing access to certain roads and upgrading interchanges in both cities.

Here are some of the places where the changes are being proposed:

  • Spokane Street and Seltice Way Interchanges
  • Northwest Boulevard Interchange
  • US-95 and Fourth Street Interchanges
  • Seventh Street Bridge
  • Sherman Avenue Interchange

One open house will be on November 1 in Post Falls. It will run from 4-7 p.m. at the Red Lion Hotel Templin’s on the River.

The second open house will be in Coeur d’Alene on November 2 from 4-7 p.m. at Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn.

There is also an online option if you are unable to go to the open house in person.

After the study and input from the public, the recommended projects will be completed as funding becomes available. Estimates say it will take about $1-$1.2 billion.
