County Construction & Improvements
County Administrative Campus Gravel Lot Paving Project
The parking lot behind the County Courthouse is now open for use! We will have to close the lot at some point in August to have Avista install light poles. Once that is done, the project will be complete. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the project.

Post Falls DMV Parking Lot Project
This construction project will provide dedicated parking for citizens with boats, utility trailers, travel trailers and larger motorhomes or trucks. The Post Falls DMV project will add 16 regular parking spaces and 13 pull-through trailer spaces to the Post Falls Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) lot.
This will alleviate the congestion around the County Administrative buildings for VIN inspections of RVs and larger vehicles. This project is scheduled for completion at the end of July, 2018. Citizens are encouraged to take their towed or larger vehicles to the Post Falls DMV rather than the Cda DMV located off Government Way.

County Fairgrounds RV Park
Locals and visitors to the Kootenai County Fairgrounds are aware the Fair hosts or puts on many very popular activities throughout the year. To better service the vendors and visitors who have traditionally parked their RV's on the open field, the Fair Board sought and received two State grants to install full service dedicated RV parking on the north side of the Fairgrounds next to the RV pump out station.
The RV Park Project is a multi-phased project. Phases one and two include the installation of utilities such as sewer, water and electricity, as well as over 25 camping pads. Phase three will add amenities such as BBQ grills, picnic tables other amenities.

Kootenai County Jail expansion. The Jail Expansion Project includes a 30,000 square feet expansion with 22,000 square feet finished space. There will be an 84 bed close-custody facility, a 28 bed medical facility, and a 10 bed inmate worked dormitory. This project is scheduled for substantial completion by mid-September, 2018. The additional space will allow inmates that are being held in out of county facilities as far away as Yakama, Washington to be returned to Kootenai County to stand trial.
