City to discuss taking over maintenance of Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive

Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - All roads lead to public discourse.

The Coeur d'Alene City Council open house meeting regarding the Idaho Department of Transportation's offer to give the city roughly 5 miles of Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive and $3 million will be 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8 in the Community Room of the Coeur d'Alene Public Library.

ITD no longer wants to maintain the old highway, and is offering the stretch of road to the city.

Annual upkeep on the road would cost the city $13,160, according to the street superintendent, which the department said it could afford.

The property up for grabs traces the old road but extends to water's edge in spots, creating public access to the lake, including an area at Silver Beach that the city has said would make a good location for a boat launch.

Officials said before they make a decision on the offer, they'd like to hear input from neighbors and others about the possible deal.

The 5-mile stretch is just east of city limits, but in the city's identified area of impact, meaning it could be annexed into the city at some point in the future.
