Potential Downtown CdA Traffic Mess?

I eye-balled the future alignment of n/b traffic on the new 2-block section of 3rd Street from the McEuen Park lot and Front Avenue. Northbound motorists will arrive at the lights at 3rd & Lakeside to find that they're directed to turn right onto Lakeside and, I presume, to turn left onto 4th as they head farther northbound. If they cross the Lakeside, they'll be going the wrong way on a one-way. I suspect a few confused motorists -- and a lot of drunks -- will do so. Also, I wonder how messed things might be for boaters pulling trailers trying to make that turn and being caught at the 4th & Lakeside light. The southernmost 2 blocks of 3rd Street will be closed next week for construction to realign the street. Coeur d'Alene Today story here.

Question: Do you expect problems with the new two-way traffic alignment of the southernmost 2 blocks of one-way 3rd Street?
