Construction update as of 8/13/18:  The Notice to Proceed was May 21st.

General Description:
The Ada County Highway District will begin work this spring to reconstruct several roadway segments in downtown Boise as part of the Downtown Boise Implementation Plan, a plan to bring transportation improvements to the downtown core.  This plan includes replacing and upgrading pedestrian ramps, patching soft spots, and milling and overlay work.   The following roadway segments will be effected:

  • 2nd Street between Myrtle Street and Front Street: Concrete work is complete
  • 4th Street between Grove Street and State Street:  Pipe work and concrete work is complete
  • Avenue A between Myrtle Street and Front Street:  Contractor is working on traffic signal improvements. There is some minor concrete and brick repair work remaining after the signal is complete
  • Front Street between 16th Street and 13th Street: Concrete work is ongoing
  • River Street between 9th Street and Capitol Boulevard:  Milling and paving is expected to begin August 15th. Road will be open with flaggers

  • 8th Street between Myrtle Street and Broad Street
  • Broad Street between 9th Street and 8th Street: Concrete work is complete
  • Grove Street between 6th Street and 3rd Street

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained at all times. Lane closures, parking restrictions, intersection closures, and possibly full road closures will be necessary for the construction of this project.  Work hours that require lane closures during the day will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.;  Work will be permitted to begin earlier as long as it does not impact traffic.  Nighttime work, if needed, will be between 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.   Road and intersection closures will be limited, when possible, to weekends and any closures will have seven (7) days advance notice.
