Ironman Closures Coming Wednesday

You may want to avoid driving through some parts of Coeur d'Alene starting on Wednesday and going through the weekend.

Wednesday afternoon street crews will begin to set in place the barricades and detour route for the closure of Sherman Avenue at 2nd Avenue and Independence Point for the annual Ironman Triathlon.

Southbound traffic wanting to get into the downtown area will be detoured onto Lakeside Avenue to 2nd, 3rd or 5th, etc., to reach Sherman Avenue. Resort traffic should use 1st Street.

Westbound traffic will be detoured southbound onto 2nd Street and Front Avenue. These vehicles will loop around onto 4th Street and exit the downtown on Lakeside or north on 4th Street. 2nd Street at Sherman will be closed to northbound traffic.

The Independence Point parking lot will be closed early Wednesday as they set up medical tents and Ironman stores. At the time of the closure, the signals at 2nd and Sherman will be put in the red flash mode and the signal at Lakeside and Independence Point will be shut off to keep traffic flowing.
