13 Jul St Luke’s and Surrounding Road Construction Updates
Below are updates from various construction projects near the St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center. Please share these updates with your networks, neighbors and friends. Thank you!
- Bannock corridor to open soon: Construction on the redesigned Bannock corridor, between Ave. A and 1st Street in the heart of the Boise Medical Center, is expected to be complete by August. The ‘shared space’ will allow vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians to move through the area. Please watch for signs to guide pedestrians and patients while the corridor is under construction.
- New roundabout nearly complete: The City of Boise’s new roundabout near 3rd, Fort and Robbins is ahead of schedule and nearly complete. Central Paving expects the roundabout to be open by early August.
- Children’s Pavilion: On the weekend of July 27-28, local company Trademark Design and Fabrication will install art on the Pavilion. A crane will be used and lanes will be restricted on Ave. B and Jefferson during the weekend. Please watch for detours. The roads will be reopened by the evening of Sunday, July 28.
- Central Plant construction: Construction crews will pour concrete in the early morning hours of July 19, 25 and 30, for the new Central Plant and Patient Parking Garage, currently being built between 1st and 2nd streets, and State and Jefferson. Crews will work to minimize noise and impact on the neighborhood. Please continue to watch for detours on Jefferson and 2nd Street.
- Dona Larsen pathway: During the evening of July 17, ACHD will begin constructing a new pedestrian crosswalk on Broadway, just north of the University of Idaho’s Water Center. The crosswalk will connect to Dona Larsen Park. Broadway will remain open, but lanes may be restricted at times throughout July, according to ACHD.
- Tree watering: Neighbors recently raised concerns about the health of some trees near the cycle track and Medical Office Plaza. Construction and maintenance crews have increased watering to the trees and installed water bags on some trees to ensure appropriate watering.
Have a great weekend,
