Plans for new waterfront park in Coeur d'Alene moving forward
04/26/2018 2:00am

The city of Coeur d'Alene is moving forward with plans to buy 47 acres of waterfront property along the Spokane River.The property, just south of Seltice Way between Atlas Road and John Loop in Riverstone, is the former site of the Atlas mill which shut down more than a decade ago."It's the last large parcel of public waterfront that may ever available," said Councilwoman Kiki Miller.That's why the city of Coeur d'Alene jumped at the chance to buy the $7.8 million dollar lot - to keep a large stretch of shoreline along the Spokane River permanently open to the public."The city staff, and the council, and the mayor are very committed to as much public waterfront as possible," Miller said. "And it's finding that balance between how do we pay for that and keep it open to the public."The city plans to sell some of the land to private developers. Condos, apartments, single family homes, and restaurants will help pay for public projects like new parks, trails, and community spaces.Miller said, "We know there's got to be mix use. There's got to be public funds, there's got to be private funds, but it's really going to depend on - after this type of analysis - what the public wants to see happen there and what they are willing to pay for."There's a lot to consider, which is why the city has held three public meetings to give residents the chance to weigh in on all the design options. The city of Coeur d'Alene will officially purchase the land in mid May.For more information about the project, click here. ]]>

Semi loses load on I-90, causing massive backup
04/25/2018 8:40pm

According to Washington State Patrol, a semi hauling crushed cars was headed westbound on Interstate 90 on Wednesday when it swerved to avoid another car. Several of the crushed cars flew into the eastbound traffic and were hit by several oncoming vehicles, shutting down all lanes of eastbound traffic. Washington State Patrol troopers report there were no serious injuries in the crash. Crews were on scene directing traffic and getting debris cleared, however during the worst of the backup, folks were turning around and exiting the interstate using on-ramps. Downtown traffic was impacted as folks looked for alternate routes, causing delays. {"url":"https://twitter.com/HawkKXLY/status/989248609202810880","author_name":"Hawk Hammer","author_url":"https://twitter.com/HawkKXLY","html":"&#lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&#gt;&#lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&#gt;Traffic still very backed up going WB on I90 from where I am at the Bernard 4th intersection, EB past the crash seems to be moving.

The Spokane River is fun...and dangerous
04/25/2018 8:21pm

The pictures only tell half the story. The Spokane River is just as unforgiving as it is gorgeous."The water is about as cold as it can be without freezing," said Josh Flanagan, owner of Wiley E. Waters."You got less than 2 minutes (until hypothermia sets in) at this time of year," he said.However - with the sun shining, and the bitter winter behind us, even the first responders understand the appeal of the water every spring."It's kind of innate for people to want to get closer to the water, enter the water and enjoy what we have to offer," said Spokane Fire Deputy Chief Mark John. John, a self-described lover of water and veteran swimmer, claims even he wouldn't venture into the river without a life jacket during July and August, let alone April. With that said - the high spring waters do offer a unique thrill for those who are craving it."It's a great time of year to be out white water rafting," said Flanagan. "There's gonna be some really high waters around this time of year tho so you want to just be sure you're being safe when you are going out. But if you're done correctly and done right with a commercial rafter you're definitely gonna have fun." ]]>
