Not to beat a dead horse or anything, but in case you hadn't heard, KMPO will host a public open house next week to gather input on possible improvements to make SH 97 safer and more efficient.
KMPO has been working with agencies and residents of the SH 97 area on a Corridor Study/Route Development Plan to determine the highway’s ability to address current and future transportation needs on the east side of Lake Coeur d’Alene.
The study team developed proposed improvements for each mile of SH 97. The open house will be used to present those improvements to the public and receive input on them. Comments will also be collected on the possibility of implementing ferry service on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
The open house is Tuesday, June 10, 2008 from 5-7 p.m. at Harrison Elementary School at 13030 East O'Gara Road in Harrison, ID. For more information, go to www.kmpo.net.
