Road closures begin Monday in Rathdrum

Rathdrum will close two major roadways starting Monday, and closures are expected to last months.

“We are entering into construction season,” said Rathdrum City Administrator Leon Duce.

Shoulder work will start on Highway 53 reducing the road to one lane each way, with a flagger controlling traffic flow.

That project should last between three and four months.

The intersection at Boekel and Meyer roads will close to start roadwork on a new roundabout, and the intersection should remain closed until August. Detours will be set up for that project until it finishes toward the end of the summer.

“Find another way to get to wherever you need to go, because those areas will be closed down,” Duce said.
