In brief: 15th Ave. project focus of meeting

An open house will be held today, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Post Falls City Council Chambers, 408 Spokane St., to provide the Post Falls community an opportunity to have their questions answered regarding the upcoming 15th Avenue Bicycle/Pedestrian Project, scheduled to begin Monday, weather permitting.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety separating bicycle and pedestrian traffic from automobiles through the construction of dedicated bicycle lanes in both directions and a 6-foot sidewalk along the north side of 15th Ave. The construction will include an installation of curb and gutter, upgrading of stormwater collection drains and the improvement of school zone markings.

For more information, call Robert Palus, assistant city engineer at 773-4235.
