The Museum of North Idaho is surrounded by ditches, mounds of dirt and orange construction safety fencing, but it is indeed still operating and open to the public. "I think when people come down here, they see all the structures in front of the museum and all the equipment and they don’t see any immediate place to get to the museum," said museum program and marketing director Robert Singletary. "I think they’re just assuming that we’re closed." City assistant project manager Kim Harrington said the work being conducted by Contractors Northwest, Inc. in the area of the museum, located at 115 Northwest Blvd., is a part of the city's flood works repair project. Workers are building a sheet pile wall that is required for FEMA certification. "It's all a part of the same project when they took down the trees down at Rosenberry Drive," Harrington said Thursday. "We're closing that opening and redoing the concrete cap that's on top of the sheet pile wall"/Devin Heilman, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
