City of Lewiston West Enhancement Project suffers another set back

LEWISTON, ID - The cities effort to beautify the west entrance into Lewiston has suffered yet another set back.

The West Enhancement Project, which was scheduled to finish up in early June, is now set to finish in May of 2013. Lewiston Parks and Recreation Director Tim Barker said due to this year's weather, an extension was necessary. The $904,000 project is nearly complete with just the painting of the mural left unfinished. Barker said paint suppliers recommended waiting to ensure paint for the mural would stick properly to the wall.

At this time the mural sketch is finished, but because the wall would need to be 35 degrees or warmer for up to two weeks, an extension was granted.
