A planned power outage by Avista Corp. will cause several downtown Coeur d’Alene traffic signals to be offline for a few hours Friday.
Avista is working to relocate some utilities for the City of Coeur d’Alene’s new parking garage project on Coeur d’Alene Avenue, requiring the temporary power outage from 6 to 8 a.m.
Signals at 3rd Street and Lakeside Avenue, 4th Street and Lakeside Avenue, and Lakeside Avenue and Northwest Boulevard will be offline for that period of time. Temporary stop signs will be placed in these locations by Perfection Traffic Control, working on behalf of Avista. Local businesses that will be impacted by the short outage have been notified by Avista.
