GRANGEVILLE With Border Days out of the way, now work can begin in earnest on repaving projects along Grangeville’s Main Street and an approximate two-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 95 running through town.
Knife River is the contractor on this $2.3 million project, scheduled for completion in late September. Motorists can expect delays up to 15 minutes through the U.S. 95 work, and the Main Street project will be conducted at night with detour routes for traffic.
State Highway 13/Main Street
Work will include milling and replacing paving starting at Main Street’s junction with U.S. 95 and ending at Mount Idaho Road; upgrading curb ramps, signal heads and signs.
Paving operations will be primarily during nighttime hours, 9 p.m.-6 a.m. – and detours will take traffic along South First Street and the truck route. Main Street parking will be open during the day, and Knife River will be notifying the public about nighttime parking area closures through the project.
A portion of the project, upgrading Main Street ADA curb ramps, was conducted last month.
U.S. 95 will receive an in-depth Cement Recycled Base Stabilization (CRABS) resurfacing, starting south of Grangeville at milepost 239.5 to milepost 242. Work will include an overlay and replacing signs. Culvert replacement, in advance of the project, was substantially completed through last month.
Johnston Road is set as an alternative route, and flaggers and pilot cars will be used to direct traffic on U.S. 95. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes during construction.
