COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- Construction on Coeur d’Alene’s Front Avenue is creating concerns for some local business owners.
The road is next to McEuen Park, which is undergoing renovations. With the road closed, some business owners say sales are dropping.
“The customer decrease has been going on, I’m guessing, because of the parking issue that will be going on all summer, long into November,” owner of Wiggetts Antique Market said.
City leaders say they realize construction is affecting businesses, but it’s necessary for the project.
