The Post Falls (Idaho) Urban Renewal Agency’s quest to secure right of way for the under-construction Greensferry overpass has resulted in another condemnation lawsuit, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported.

The URA, which is funding the $15 million overpass expected to be completed this fall, filed suit in First District Court against Coeur d’Alene RV Resort Inc. and Downey Enterprises, a Washington partnership, to obtain a strip of property on the east side of Greensferry north of Interstate 90 to widen the road for an overpass approach.
