Great Northern closed for repairs
A portion of Great Northern Road is closed to all users through Saturday, July 9, according to Sandpoint officials.
The road was closed at 7 a.m. Tuesday and will remain closed until 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Great Northern will be closed between the north side of Gooby to the south side of Turbine Drive. Motorists will be detoured to the west at Mountain View and Gooby roads, Sandpoint City Administrator Jennifer Stapleton said.
The repairs include complete removal and replacement of the paved surface for approximately 1,300 feet north of Gooby Road. Occasional single lane closures, controlled by flaggers, will occur south of Gooby Road to accommodate asphalt patching, Stapleton said.
