Highway system

State Highway 41, abbreviated SH-41, is a state highway mostly in the U.S. state of Idaho. It runs from Interstate 90 in Post Falls to U.S. Route 2 on the Washington state line. The northernmost 0.41 miles (0.66 km) of SH-41 run along State Street along the state line, with the southbound lane in the town of Newport, Washington, and the northbound lane in Oldtown, Idaho. The part of the highway in Washington is designated State Route 41 (SR 41).

Route description[edit]

The southern terminus of State Highway 41 is located at the intersection of Ross Point – Rathdrum Highway and Seltice Way, just south of I-90 exit 7 in the city of Post Falls, Idaho.[3] The highway then proceeds north on the Ross Point – Rathdrum Highway, intersection State Highway 53 in the town of Rathdrum.[4] It passes by Spirit Lake, intersecting State Highway 54, before turning northwest towards the Newport/Oldtown area.[5]

Shortly after crossing the Oldtown city limits, SH-41 intersects State Avenue, which straddles the state (and city) line between Oldtown, Idaho, and Newport, Washington. North of this intersection, the northbound lanes lie in Oldtown, while the southbound lanes are known as State Route 41 by the Washington State Department of Transportation, and lie in Newport. Approximately 7 blocks north of the intersection with State Avenue, SH-41 ends at U.S. Route 2.[2][6]


State Street straddles the Washington–Idaho state line, with the southbound lane in Newport and the northbound lane in Oldtown, Idaho. Between Walnut and Fourth, the Idaho side of the street is part of State Highway 41, which runs from US-2 at the state line south to Interstate 90 at Post Falls. Until 1997, the Washington side of the street was part of US 2, which created confusion as each side of the street was part of a completely different highway. In 1997 the Washington side of State Street was designated SR 41 to match the Idaho numbering.
