Planning and Traffic Analysis Study

Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment

Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization (KMPO), ignite cda, Kootenai Health, the City of Coeur d’ Alene, and the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) are working collaboratively to identify the transportation changes needed to accommodate development in and around the Health Corridor Urban Renewal District. In July 2020, KMPO, ignite cda, Kootenai Health, the City of Coeur d’Alene, and ITD contracted with DOWL to perform the current study to build upon the Health Corridor Master Plan. The project is focused on evaluating the transportation needs and developing recommendations for solutions that address congestion and safety issues within and around the Health Corridor District.

An initial public open house was held June 17, 2021, which briefed the public on the initial results of the study including the existing conditions and analysis and proposed changes that have been developed to support future growth in the Health Corridor. Since that time, DOWL has finalized their analysis of the future conditions and drafted an Implementation Plan for recommended improvements that corresponds with the phasing of the Health Corridor Urban Renewal District.

A follow-up virtual open house will be held August 19th, 2021 from 5 pm to 7 pm to provide public review of the final results.  DOWL staff will present the study information at both 5 pm and 6 pm with a question and answer session to follow each presentation.
