Updates available on planned Broadway Avenue Bridge Replacement
The existing bridge is more than 50 years old and needs to be rebuilt to meet today's standards, When complete, the new Broadway Avenue Bridge will include more lanes for traffic, wider sidewalks, new bicycle lanes and enhanced connectivity to the Greenbelt. Broadway Avenue also will be rebuilt between University Drive and Front Street.
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) worked with the community for several years to develop design plans for the Broadway Bridge Replacement Project. The design plans are posted at: www.itd.idaho.gov/BroadwayBridge/
Construction is expected to begin in late December 2015. As construction gets closer, ITD will provide more information about impacts and detour routes. The ValleyRide bus routes that will be impacted during construction are routes 2,18, 40, 43 and 44.
