“The Artist’s conceptual plan introduces a major environmental feature, the living wall concept, which replaces traditional post-and-beam highway construction with MSE green walls. The project, sited between Lake Pend Oreille and Sand Creek, is the backdrop to downtown Sandpoint. Implementing the MSE Green Wall in place of traditional concrete structures allowed the Team to address the concerns of the community creating a park-like space rather than a freeway under-story at the backside of downtown. The project includes three entryway bridges, the Sand Creek boardwalk, bicycle paths, trails, retaining walls, lighting, drainage ponds, wetland mitigation, and fish and wildlife habitat mitigation.”
