War Memorial Field Construction Schedule


11/13/2015 – for immediate release


The City is pleased to share that a meeting held today with the Memorial design team (local engineers and architects), City, School District, Festival, Friends of Memorial Field, and other interested parties resulted in a construction schedule.  It was the consensus of the group that the dates presented will least impact our community and best position the project for success.  Many participants have been at the table for years working together towards this exciting time.  We are unified.

Early April, 2016 – Bid opening

Downtown Traffic Changes and Road Work

July 2015 - In collaboration with the Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency, the City of Sandpoint will move forward with frontage improvements along Church St. from First Ave. to Fifth Ave.  It is anticipated that this work will begin just after Labor Day and will be substantially complete prior to winter. The design of this project follows the “Downtown Streets Plan and Design Guide” adopted by Sandpoint City Council in 2012 (see link below). The work on Church will focus on sidewalks and storm water facilities. The road base is in good shape, so road closures will be limited to curb work and trenching for utilities. You may contact Bruce Robertson with any questions or concerns: brobertson@sandpointidaho.gov or 255-1877.
