Sara Meyer of Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene provides this photo of work this morning along Front Avenue. Seems those railroad ties, which once were traversed by trains going to the old Rutledge Mill (Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course) were buried under pavement somewhere).
The general contractor, Contractors Northwest Inc., is currently removing asphalt, curb and sidewalk from Front Avenue. CNI started removing sidewalk Wednesday on the north side of Front Avenue to prepare for waterline work. The contractor sent out a notice to affected properties around the Fourth Street and Front Avenue area to let them know that water would be temporarily shut off while lines are re-routed on Friday. The same will be happen at the affected properties around the Fifth Street and Front Avenue area next week. Notices will be sent out on Monday, April 1 and water will be temporarily shut off Wednesday, April 3/Kristina Lyman, Coeur d'Alene Today. More here.
Question: Do you remember the train runs through Coeur d'Alene that picked up material at the old Rutledge Mill?
