36th Street/Hill Road Bypass to open Wednesday

36th Street/Hill Road Bypass to open Wednesday

Boise – Starting mid-morning on Wednesday, 36th Street between Garden Center Way and Hill Road will close, and the traffic signal will be removed. Traffic will be diverted to a bypass road that will connect 36th Street to Hill Road just east of the existing intersection. Stop signs will be put into effect.

Motorists are advised to slow down and maneuver the intersection carefully while everyone gets used to the new traffic pattern. Flaggers will be on site tomorrow to help motorists navigate the new bypass. Barriers will place a safety divider between pedestrians and the motorists using the bypass. 

Catalpa Drive from 36th Street to Garden Center Way will also remain closed through August, the likely duration of the project.

The closure is required as crews rebuild the configuration of the intersection. The bypass is expected to be in place until May. The project is expected to be complete in August.
