The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) and Idaho Materials & Construction are rebuilding the intersection of State Street, Veterans Memorial Parkway and 36th Street. Utility work began in January and construction will start at the beginning of February. Work is expected to be complete in fall 2018.

What can neighbors & commuters expect?

  • Work is anticipated to occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.  Night work and weekend work is expected.

State Street
Agencies throughout Ada County have been working since 2004 to develop a vision for the State Street corridor. State Street is envisioned as a transit corridor with increased regional, express and local bus service, and high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. The future HOV lanes adopted by the State Street Plan will be dedicated for buses, multiple-occupant vehicles, and right-turning vehicles.

On March 27, 2013 the ACHD Commission voted to adopt the State Street/Veterans Memorial Parkway/36th Street Intersection Study concept report and preferred alternative #9 (Partial Median U-turn/ThrU-Turn).


The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) and the City of Boise are working together on a study of the State Street/Veterans Memorial Parkway/36thStreet intersection area, a neighborhood that features a popular park, an elementary school and a variety of businesses.

The goal of the study is to design an intersection that will efficiently and safely meet the future needs of all users - motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users.
