$98 million Sandpoint Bypass opened in 2012: http://itd.idaho.gov/projects/d1/SandCreekByway/
Work on the Sand Creek Byway project was completed June 29, 2012. The project constructed 2.1 miles of a new alignment connecting U.S. 95, from the northern end of the Long Bridge, directly to Idaho 200 and U.S. 95 north of Sandpoint. The project includes six bridges, 65 retaining walls, and a pedestrian/bike pathway. It is one of the largest single projects in Idaho Transportation history.
Building an alternate route on U.S. 95 on the eastern side of Sandpoint has been a topic of local interest since the 1940s and has generated considerable debate among supporters and opponents. Several ideas have been discussed in the community over the years, but those ideas didn't progress beyond the drawing board until 1990 when ITD began considering the U.S. 95 North/South Alternative Route.
As part of the U.S. 95 North/South study, ITD completed environmental analysis of U.S. 95 from Sagle to Ponderay as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was completed in 1999 and the Federal Highway Administration issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving the environmental document in 2000.
