Rathdrum May Gain Access To Rathdrum Mtn

Posted: Updated:
RATHDRUM, Idaho (AP) - It may soon be possible to access 557 acres the city of Rathdrum owns on Rathdrum Mountain for recreational purposes.
    
After at least a decade of effort, the city has located documents showing that Barrett Drive, formerly named Foster Road, has been a county road since 1909.
    
The Coeur d'Alene Press (http://bit.ly/1lFzOpf ) reports that Barrett Drive leads to the city's mountain property.
    
A public hearing before the Post Falls Highway District seeking validation will be held on Feb. 19.
