Eagle watchers on SH97 near Mineral Ridge Boat Launch

The Idaho State Police in Coeur d'Alene is requesting people wishing to view the eagles off SH97 from the Interstate 90 south to milepost 93 to do so in a safe manner. This area is a high congestion of regular traffic and with the increase of vehicles just for watching the eagles it has become a hazardous situation.

All vehicles and people in this area if stopped have to be off the paved portion of the highway. Any vehicles that are found to be parked on the pavement will be subject to towing at the owner's expense.

Please use caution in this high traffic area on SH97 between the Interstate and milepost 93.

Thanks for your assistance.
