It was a tough day (August 27) for commuting around the Bonners Ferry metropolitan area today. Both downtown bridges with ongoing construction updates, and add to that the closure of two important downtown entrances to Highway 95: the North Main Street intersection to leave Bonners Ferry and cross the Kootenai Bridge was closed. Also closed was the Comanche Street access to Highway 95 (the street that runs through the North Side toward the hospital). Just keep thinking of the great new bridge surfaces we will soon have . . .
