Downtown Traffic Changes / Fifth Avenue Two-Way

On July 16, 2014, Sandpoint City Council voted to endorse a plan to convert Fifth Avenue between Cedar and Pine Streets to two-way traffic.  See the link below or click here to view the specific changes at each intersection.  The Idaho Transportation Department prepared the plan following a request by Sandpoint City Council in June 2013.

 

Closely tied to converting Fifth Avenue to two-way is an agreement between ITD and Sandpoint to transfer ownership of existing US 2 (Pine Street, Cedar Street and First Avenue in the downtown core) to local control (Independent Highway District and City of Sandpoint).

 

In December 2012, Sandpoint City Council voted to adopt the Downtown Streets Plan.  This plan is available here for download.  The plan calls for two-way traffic on all downtown streets (except Main Street between Third and Fifth Avenues).
