Driving through Sandpoint could become easier starting this morning. That is when the first section of the Sand Creek Byway (was scheduled to open at 10 o'clock). The half mile stretch of road marks the first open phase of the 2.2 mile project. Engineer Ken Sorensen said northbound traffic will be routed onto the new loop. Southbound traffic will be diverted either east or west of the junction of U.S. 95 and Highway 200. Other drivers will still have their same routes while relieving traffic in the heart of Sandpoint/KREM. More here.
Question: When did you last drive through Sandpoint?
