It's been a decade in the making, with the last year and a half filled with closures and construction, but there's light at the end of the tunnel for Coeur d'Alene as McEuen Park is set to open in a matter of weeks.
Construction workers shifted over to a seven day schedule back in March to stay on track for the May 24 grand opening.
The park is 20 acres in the middle of Couer d'Alene, so businesses are obviously looking forward to the construction zones giving way to cars, pedestrians and most importantly customers.
"When this street is open we will be for sure busy because when the people who pass here will not have another option," Robson Kallai at Grille From Ipanema said.
"I know there's a lot of customers that are excited about getting up on Tubbs Hill again from both sides. Plus, just the parking alone we'll be nice in and out access," Andrew Pigott and Bakery By The Lake said.
The city anticipates opening the east side of the park on May 2 but city officials say some people are getting a head start on the fun.
