The treatment of Hubbard Avenue has been re-evaluated through the July 4 holiday. MDM Construction will postpone the excavation of Hubbard Avenue until after the holiday weekend. This will keep Hubbard in a passable condition for emergency vehicles to utilize at all times. In addition, Hubbard Avenue will be open to the general public throughout the holiday weekend, except on July 4th between 4 p.m. and “breakup,” which begins shortly before the end of the fireworks display and ends when traffic is cleared from town. During breakup, Mullan Avenue will be the only exit from the Fort Grounds neighborhood and North Idaho College campus for traffic. More below. And: Education Corridor website for updates here.
Fort Grounds Homeowners: The normal Fourth of July traffic plan will be in place. The barricades will close Mullan Avenue and Government Way from approximately 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the parade. Hubbard and the Lincoln exit off Northwest Boulevard may be utilized during this time. The barricades will be replaced at approximately 4 p.m. for the fireworks display and no access will be allowed via Mullan Avenue between 4 p.m. and the end of breakup. Homeowners may utilize Lincoln Way off of Northwest Boulevard to enter the Fort Grounds neighborhood and use Hubbard to exit.
