Early Warning- US 95 Access Study Meeting

Mark your calendars if you drive US95 through Coeur d'Alene and Hayden, KMPO is joining the Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce to conduct a US95 Access Study, and we're kicking it off with a meeting next week of business owners along the US95 corridor and members of the public.

Development along the corridor has led to high traffic volumes. During peak hours, motorists experience long lines of cars waiting at signals along the highway, as well as on the cross streets.

A meeting to promote community understanding of the purpose and scope of the study will be held Tuesday, May 20 from 3-5 p.m. at the Silver Lake Motel, 6160 N. Sunshine St. in Coeur d’Alene. The meeting agenda includes an overview of the study, preliminary alternatives to be studied, and stakeholder and public comments and concerns.

For questions, call KMPO at 1-800-698-1927 or the Coeur d’Alene Chamber at (208) 415-0109, or go to www.kmpo.net.
