COEUR d'ALENE - Construction of the U.S. 95 Wyoming to Idaho 53 project begins Monday, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

The contractor will be working Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Lancaster Road, between U.S. 95 and Government Way, will be closed beginning Thursday and will remain closed until further notice. A signed detour will be in place.

Two-way traffic will remain on the current highway lanes while the new northbound lanes and median are constructed. When finished, traffic will be switched over and construction will begin on the new southbound lanes.

Motorists can expect intermittent minor delays as traffic is stopped between Boeckel Road and Lancaster Road to allow truck traffic from the work site to cross the highway. Flaggers will guide traffic through the work zone area.

The contractor for the $6 million project is Interstate Concrete and Asphalt of Coeur d'Alene. The project is funded with savings from federal highway stimulus projects bid earlier this year. The project is expected to be complete by October.
