Prospect Avenue Grade – Main St. to 3rd Avenue

Lewiston, IdahoApr 23, 20101 Comments

Lewiston Police love to sit at the top of Prospect Grade, because it’s a prime speed trap. The hill itself isn’t very steep, but it is very easy to get going 5+ over the limit. Exercise *extreme* caution as soon as possible at the crest, because some LPD units have lidar, and you’ll get bit.

Prospect Avenue is clearly marked 25 MPH (residential), and runs parallel to Snake River Avenue (35 MPH). These are also the only two avenues in town that run north to south.

The police don't due enough on Prospect. I live right off of Prospect and some of the Clarkston people going to the hospital or LCSC have been clocked at 50mph. There are 2 school bus stops on Prospect between Southway and 11th ave. Most of the people I see and I walk my dogs every morning are going way over the speed limit and are talking on a cell phone. For part of Prospect there are no sidewalks so people need to be on the side of the road. Its very dangerous and it is a neighborhood, but they drive like its a highway.
