City crews will reassemble the seawall between Park Drive and Hubbard Avenue through City Park to Northwest Boulevard on Monday, Sept. 30 as part of the recertification of the Rosenberry Drive (the dike road along NIC's beach) levee. NIC students, employees and visitors should plan on Rosenberry Drive being closed to traffic in certain areas along the southern side of Rosenberry Drive between Park and Hubbard. Parts of City Park and the beach will also be closed during construction.
The seawall is only a temporary construct and will be removed within the week. The work is expected to take 10 to 12 hours to complete, but the project could wrap up sooner.
The city of Coeur d'Alene, as the sponsor of the flood works system, is seeking certification from FEMA through a third-party engineering firm. Recertification involves a series of repairs and maintenance to the 1.5-mile stretch between Harbor Center and Independence Point.
