Diamond Cup Brings Sheriff’s Alert

As the Diamond Cup Hydroplane races near, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office would like to alert the public to waterways hazards and potential traffic congestion. For the past few days, event organizers have been setting the race course on Lake Coeur d’Alene, near the Silver Beach area. From now through the Labor Day weekend, numerous course buoys and log booms will be moved into the area for the races. Boaters are encouraged to use extreme caution when traversing the area around the course. Additionally, beginning Thursday morning August 29, Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive from Potlatch Hill Rd to just west of Sunnyside Rd will be reduced to one lane of travel with traffic flaggers at each end. Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive will remain one lane through the weekend. The Centennial Trail will also remain open, but will be diverted next to the single lane of vehicular traffic/Lt. Stu Miller, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. More here.

Question: Do you expect the renewal of the Diamond Cup hydroplane races to go smoothly?
