St. Luke’s Construction Updates and Bannock Survey

St. Luke’s Construction Updates and Bannock Survey

Hello, neighbors!

We hope you are staying safe and well during this time. Below is a brief update on projects near the St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center. We have also added our updated COVID-19 resource website, in case you need information.


  1. Bannock survey
    1. Have you used the Bannock corridor, the one-block stretch between Ave. A and 1st Street in the middle of the Boise Medical Center?
  1.          Please take a survey on your use of Bannock here.
  1. Repaving work
    1. As construction nears completion with phase 1 of the improvements to St. Luke’s, crews are planning to repave the roads and improve sidewalks around the construction zones, including parts of 1st, 2nd and Jefferson streets.
    2. Repaving is expected to begin in the coming days and wrap up before the end of the month.
    3. Please watch for flaggers and signs to help direct traffic in the areas.
  2. Generator testing
    1. Officials are planning to conduct testing on the new emergency generators at the construction site, likely on Dec. 17 and/or Dec. 18 (dates subject to change).
    2. Neighbors may notice noise during the testing period. Crews will try to minimize noise and impact.
  3. State Street work
    1. A local construction company is remodeling the building near the northwest corner of 1st and State streets. This work is not related to the Boise Medical Center construction.
    2. According to ACHD, from now until early January, State Street between 1st and 2nd streets will be restricted to east-bound traffic only. There is a detour for west-bound traffic.
  4. Holiday event planning tips
    1. We have attached PDFs that provide helpful tips to stay safe during the holidays (English and Spanish versions attached).
