ACHD and Garden City Officials to Break Ground on 36th Street Project

Garden City– A top priority roadway project for Garden City will break ground on Thursday (May 9). The project will rebuild 36th Street between Chinden Boulevard and the Waterfront District, and will add curb, gutter and sidewalks to both sides of the street. Garden City will install decorative street lighting and landscaping.

36th Street is in the heart of Garden City’s Live-Work-Create District, an area planned for mixed use where local business owners have the opportunity to work and live in the same location.

On Thursday, May 9 at 10 a.m., Ada County Highway District (ACHD) and Garden City officials will gather to break ground on the roadway improvement project.
