The Federal Highway Administration has approved a new Interstate 90 interchange to serve the west end of Port Falls, including a new Walmart store and the Cabela’s sporting goods store near Stateline.
The Beck Road Interchange will be designed and built by Foursquare Properties Inc., the Carlsbad, Calif., developer of The Pointe, the shopping center that began with the Cabela’s anchor store.
Foursquare will recoup the cost of the project through temporary suspension of state sales tax collections at the Cabela’s store. The state’s latest cost estimate for the project is $28 million.
Construction on the diamond-shape interchange is expected to begin next year and last about a year, after environmental work and project design is completed, said Foursquare president Jeff Vitek.
The interchange will be built to state and federal standards and turned over to the state, which will maintain and operate it.
