Front Avenue To Reopen Nov. 22

Item: Back to Front: City expects to open avenue on Nov. 22/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: After meeting with contractors Wednesday morning, the city has released a new schedule for the opening of Front Avenue this month. "We had a construction meeting this morning and we will be opening Front on Nov. 22," said DennisGrant, engineering project manager, adding some sections will remain closed to complete some infrastructure projects. The first section of Front will open to the public between Seventh Street and Sixth Street on Nov. 19, according to a schedule City Engineer Gordon Dobler sent out to city leadership on Wednesday.

Question: My wife & I have missed Front Avenue because it is part of our normal bicycle route along the water front. Seems weird turning at Lakeside Avenue to get to City Park. How about you? Has the closure of Front Avenue been an inconvenience?
