U.S. 95 between Chilco and Silverwood will be paved beginning this week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., creating substantial delays for motorists wanting to use Chilco Road, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

The contractor will be doing test strips of asphalt until Thursday (Aug. 23), with paving on U.S. 95 to follow.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes along U.S. 95. Delays of up to two hours are anticipated for those using Chilco Road during paving operations.

Motorists can expect intermittent delays at Chilco Road through Nov. 1.

    Now days traffic is increasing day by day and traffic congestion in u.s is getting worse which leads to the wastage of time as well as fuel. Congestion is a big issue.

    Thats ok, because a new study found that 93% of Washington traffic is still south of Silverwood, causing un-needed / un-wanted congestion Starting at the off ramp at NW Blvd and extends all the way down to CdA lake......and ALL around CdA lake.
