GREENBELT SECTION TO CLOSE JAN.12 FOR RECONSTRUCT

Release Date: 12/26/2014


Crews will begin work Jan. 12 on the reconstruction of the Farmers Union Ditch Company intake structure and site prep work for Esther Simplot Park.
 
Because of safety concerns created by the presence of heavy equipment, the Greenbelt will be closed from Veteran’s Memorial Park to the 36th Street pedestrian bridge. Signs will direct pedestrians across the river to the Garden City Greenbelt.

The dirt parking lots serving Quinn’s Pond and the Boise River Park from Whitewater Park Boulevard also will be closed during construction.  A temporary lot with 32 spaces has opened at the former Bob Rice Ford property along the Greenbelt at Main Street.

Construction is expected to continue through late 2015.

The Farmers Union Ditch Company project entails replacing a culvert and headgate and then covering the ditch to facilitate the future construction of Phase II of the Boise River Park. The contractor is Boise-based McMillen LLC.  Funding for the $850,000 project is provided by the City of Boise. 

For information about the project, please contact Wendy Larimore, Parks Project Manager wlarimore@cityofboise.org or (208) 608-7636. To learn more about the detours, please see parks.cityofboise.org or call (208) 608-7600.
