This is your early warning that upcoming events in downtown Coeur d'Alene will mean some traffic impacts for you. The annual Downtown Street Fair, Taste of the Coeur d’Alenes, and Art on the Green all take place this weekend.
Because the Street Fair has expanded this year though, Sherman Avenue will be closed from Independence Point east to 7th Street to add additional vendor space. Traffic headed into the downtown area from Northwest Boulevard will be routed onto Lakeside and then south on Third Street, or north on Fourth Street. Traffic leaving the city’s Third Street parking lot will be directed eastbound only and northbound on Fourth or Seventh Street. Resort traffic only will be directed southbound on Second Street and leaving the resort eastbound only on Front.
Barricades will go up Friday morning.
