POST FALLS, ID--If you've driven on I-90 recently near Post Falls, Idaho you've probably seen a whole lot of construction. Road crews are busy putting in a new overpass that will get you to some popular stores faster.
Construction crews are plugging away right now laying the dirt and getting the interchange ready for a November opening. The heavy equipment is out and carving a new path to two popular and massive chain stores in Post Falls; Cabela’s and Wal-Mart.
The project is right on schedule. Crews started working around early June and already have a lot of the road cut out of the ground.
The on and off ramps will sit near Jacklin Seed and the race track on the south side of the freeway. On the north side there's more dirt work where the interchange will connect with Beck Road.
It will add a new way to get on and off of I-90 about a mile from the Washington State Line. The road will shoot you right to the intersection near Cabela’s and Wal-Mart. The project also ties in Riverbend Avenue on the south side of the interstate in Post Falls.
The overpass should help you save time getting to the mega-stores. Before you'd have to drive about another mile east on Pleasant View Road and backtrack or use the state line bridge to get to the stores.
The interchange should be open by Thanksgiving. As for delays or closures on I-90, we're told there's some at night, but there will be no reason for any detours.
