Construction on the LPD Security Fence Starts Monday

LEWISTON, ID - Construction of a security fence around the Lewiston Police Department gets underway Monday.

"This project is important because it allows for increased safety for our employees. This in turn allows us to continue providing quality protection services for the citizens and community we truly care about,” project manager and Lt. Jeff Klone says.

From the LPD:
Construction is scheduled to kick off Monday, April 24, 2017, and the project is expected to wrap up in approximately one month. During construction, everyone will have access to the entrance of the police station, and parking will still be available on all sides of the building.

This project has been in the works for roughly two years, and $143,836 has been budgeted to carry it through. There are four phases: 1) demolition of current parking structure and laying down concrete and asphalt; 2) installing the chain link fencing; 3) electrical work for fence, cameras, etc.; and 4) striping parking spaces, installing parking bumpers and putting up signs.

While there will be minimal impact to drivers, crews may occasionally close small sections of parking areas for public safety. “We encourage everyone to continue accessing their police services at their convenience,” Lt. Klone said.
