Thousands of people who converge on downtown Coeur d’Alene for the annual holiday lighting festivities on Friday will have the option to park at the new parking structure off Front Avenue. Access will be from Second and Third streets. Motorists can depart via Second Street, or Fourth Street. Third Street will remain one-way south, while Fourth Street will be northbound only. Project manager Dennis Grant of the city’s engineering department said about 180 parking spaces will be open. This includes parking stalls inside the parking structure and outside. Those limited parking spots will remain open through the winter, Grant said. The entire Front Avenue parking structure will open to the public next spring. Parking for the lighting ceremonies and downtown parade will be $7 per vehicle for event parking/Keith Erickson, city of Coeur d'Alene.
Question: When do you plan to first use the new parking facility at McEuen Field?
