Current & Upcoming Projects 2016

Bridge Painting

We have met with the cities of Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls and the County to discuss this project.  We are happy to announce that the bridge painting will occur late spring 2016. Assure Painting will be taking on the challenge and paint the bridge crossing the Spokane River. 

Sealcoating of the Trail

The North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation maintains the health of the trail.  In January of 2017 we will be submitting a grant in conjunction with Kootenai County for applying a sealcoat to the Trail and seal the cracks that run through the trail.  Every 5-6 years we repeat this process.

The Prairie Trail Exension

It is a goal of the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation to extend the Prairie Trail to Meyer Rd. We will continue to work toward this task.  Every mile of trail has an approximate cost of $175,000. Please become a trail supporter to help us attain this goal.
