Coeur d'Alene Sea-Wall / Storm-Wall

Coeur d'Alene Sea-Wall / Storm-Wall

The Coeur d'Alene storm-wall / sea-wall was assembled for two days for an inspection.

According to long time resident and city worker the wall was partially assembled up in the 1970's during high water on Lake Coeur d'Alene to block the walk ways to the beach. The last time the wall was fully assembled was in the 1940's

The wall stretches from North Idaho College to the Museum next to the Coeur d'Alene City Park and Beach. The only stretch not put up was next to the museum where the railroad lines used to run.

Other local residents joked that it was to stop an attack of the Fort Grounds area from the Lake to a FEMA test of using the Fort Grounds as a enclosed camp.
