Downtown Sandpoint Sewer Replacement

Post Date:09/13/2017 3:04 PM




Sandpoint – Construction work began today on Phase I of a sewer line replacement on First Avenue from Lake Street to North of Church Street in Downtown Sandpoint.  The sewer is approximately twelve feet deep requiring traffic detours during construction.

Phase I of the project is on First Avenue from Lake Street to Pine Street.  During this phase, traffic is detoured down Superior Street to Third Avenue and up to Pine Street.  Pine Street traffic will be able to turn North on First Avenue but not South.

Phase II of the project will continue on First Street from Pine Street to just north of Church Street.  During this phase, traffic will be detoured off of First Avenue at Pine Street and at Bridge/Church Streets.

The intersection at First Bridge and Church Streets will remain open during construction to provide access to City Beach, Amtrak Train Station and business and residences located along Sand Creek.

Project construction is scheduled to be complete and the roadway paved and striped by October 20, 2017.  During construction, truck traffic on Highway 95 traveling west on Highway 2 is encouraged to use the bypass to the exit onto Highway 2 and avoid downtown.

The contractor and engineer will work closely with First Avenue businesses to minimize disruption.  Sidewalks will remain open so the public can access businesses along First.

For additional information, contact Ryan Luttmann, Public Works Director/City Engineer, at rluttmann@sandpointidaho.gov or 208.263-3411.
