LAPWAI – Both lanes of U.S. Highway 95 south of Lapwai at milepost 296 are now open following repairs to damage caused by flooding earlier this week.
Floodwaters from Lapwai Creek first began eroding the northbound lane on Monday morning, and the Idaho Transportation Department reduced traffic to one lane. Repairs began later that day, with crews bringing in the rock to replace what was lost and prevent further damage.
“We are happy to return US-95 to normal condition,” Operations Engineer Jared Hopkins said.
Traffic impacts and highway conditions are available 24/7 on 511.idaho.gov.
