PUBLIC COMMENT SOUGHT FOR BROADWAY AVENUE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT IN BOISE
  
   Plans for the new Broadway Bridge include adding more travel lanes, wider sidewalks and bicycle lanes, and improving access to the Greenbelt. The project also includes rebuilding Broadway Avenue from University Drive to Front Street. The current bridge, which is more than 50 years old, is showing signs of wear and is too narrow for the high volume of cars, pedestrians and bicyclists that use it daily. 
   The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD)  has been working with the community to develop design plans for the project. ITD has been working with the community to develop design plans for the project. ITD will continue to involve and communicate with the community throughout the final design process and construction. 
    
Here is a link to more information about the project and comment on preliminary design plans.
