Sandpoint Bypass Dedication Friday
Idaho’s single largest highway project, and one that took 65 years from the time its was first discussed to completion, will be dedicated at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Sandpoint. The dedication ceremony will be held at 106 Bridge Street. Parking will be available in the City Beach lot located at the end of Bridge Street. The $100 million, 2.1-mile Sand Creek Byway will improve safety, accelerate commerce and enhance the community’s businesses by routing U.S. 95 through traffic by Sandpoint. U.S. 95 traffic has been winding around a series of Sandpoint streets since early in the 19th century.
Question: Did you ever think the Sandpoint Bypass would be built?
