Sandpoint byway erosion control draws EPA’s scrutiny, complaint

The Idaho Transportation Department is again in trouble with the federal regulators over faulty erosion controls at a U.S. Highway 95 construction project. An inspector with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency visited the Sandpoint Byway Project in January, after receiving complaints about the work. Kristine Karlson said she found numerous storm water violations at the byway project, a $95 million detour around Sandpoint’s historic downtown. The 2.1-mile byway crosses Sand Creek and follows the creek’s eastern edge.
