COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho -- The Coeur d’Alene City Council has approved a plan to turn part of Third Street in Downtown Coeur d’Alene into a two-way street.
The City Council gave initial approval for the plan to make Third Street from Front Avenue to Lakeside a two-way street. This is because of another proposal to make Front Avenue west of Third a restricted access Street.
City Engineer Glen Dobeler said by making those changes to Front Street, part of Third would have to become a two-way street. The plan comes as a result of the current construction on McEuen Park.
“The plan for McEuen always envisioned a connection between City Park, Independence Point and the park,” said Dobeler.
City Council will get an update on the project at their meeting Tuesday night to make sure the process is moving in the right direction.
Construction on Third is expected to start this fall.
