Boise – Cloverdale Road between Ustick Road and McMillan Road is back open to traffic this afternoon. The closure went into effect in February at the start of the Cloverdale and Ustick intersection improvement project and allowed for the removal and replacement of a bridge, utility upgrades and widening of the intersection approach. Work on the roadway portion of the north intersection approach is now complete; however lane restrictions will be in place.
Crews will continue work to widen the intersection and the section of Ustick Road between Duane Drive and Campton Way.
The project includes widening the Cloverdale and Ustick intersection to six lanes at all approaches (two lanes in each direction, one right and one left turn lane) with bike lanes and sidewalk where needed. A HAWK (High-intensity Activated CrossWalk) pedestrian crossing signal will be installed near Ustick Elementary School. Ustick Road between Duane Drive and Campton Way will be widened to include two travel lanes in each direction, a left turn lane, sidewalk and bike lanes. The project will reduce congestion and increase safety.
The $3.6 million project is anticipated to wrap up in September. To learn more about the Cloverdale and Ustick intersection project, visit www.achdidaho.org/projects.
