Bypass Construction Leads To Huge Archeological Dig

I know that Sandpoint isn't in Kootenai County, this story was too cool not to include on the blog.

Researchers are piecing together Sandpoint's history based on an archeological dig they're required to do because of the US 95 Bypass construction. And they've found some pretty interesting stuff.

Doug Nadvornick, a correspondent for NPR news, wrote this article for the Idaho Transportation Deparmtent's 'Transporter' newsletter.

That is interesting, the Chinese did work on the railroads in Washington and Idaho, and many worked in mines that were abandoned by others.

I thought it was interesting that this is believed to be the biggest archeological dig ever in Idaho. And it's all here in our backyard.
