Race Organizers Warn Of Congestion

Diamond Cup organizers are warning of traffic congestion heading into the race's return this weekend. One big change in preparation for the inaugural return: Most of East Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive will be reduced to one lane of traffic. The road is the main thoroughfare getting to Silver Beach, where the race course will be set up. The modification will run Thursday through Sunday to allow organizers to place about one mile's worth of bleachers in the lane of traffic closest to the water. The other, westbound lane, will remain open for traffic but flaggers will be stationed at Potlatch Hill Road and just west of Sunnyside Road to control one-way traffic flow. The Centennial Trail will also remain open, but will be diverted next to the single lane of vehicular traffic, organizers said/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What do you plan to do this coming weekend?
