Sherman Ave. Work Could Start Next Week

Traffic interruptions on Sherman Avenue in Coeur d'Alene could begin as early as March 28th when work begins a project in advance of this summer’s planned overlay. The project consists of two phases: (I) work on water services and (II) a water main extension. Work begins as soon as asphalt is available for road patching.

The first phase of the project will take approximately one week and take place mostly in the parking strip and sidewalk. During this time, there may be temporary traffic and pedestrian disruptions. Business access will be maintained at all times.

Phase II involves extending the water main from the alley south of Sherman and 5th Street north to the water main in Sherman Avenue. The extension of this water main will involve the temporary closure of Sherman Avenue during that portion of the work on Sherman Avenue. 5th Street will remain closed during the entire phase. Phase II will take approximately two weeks.
