Council OKs Downtown Street Change

Item: Part of Third St. to be two-way: Cd'A City Council votes 4-3 to approve change/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Downtown Coeur d'Alene driving will be dramatically different next spring. A lot to do with downtown will be different next spring when the $20 million McEuen Park reconstruction project wraps up, but two-way traffic will be incorporated into the finished project. The Coeur d'Alene City Council narrowly agreed 4 to 3 Tuesday to turn the one-way Third Street into a two-way street from Front to Lakeside avenues. The change is designed to ease vehicle congestion as a result of turning Front Avenue into a limited-traffic and pedestrian-friendly zone between Second and Third streets - a decision the City Council agreed to by a 5-1 vote in January.

Question: Do you feel that this significant downtown street change flew under the radar?
