Geothermal Construction Work to Tangle Traffic Near BW


Road work will make things a bit tricky in Downtown Boise beginning tomorrow. In particular, crews will be digging on Broad Street between Fourth and Fifth streets (and yes, that includes the area surrounding BWHQ).

Boise officials tell Citydesk that the biggest impact will be periodic closures of Fifth Street between Myrtle and Front from Tuesday, Aug. 2, through Friday, Aug. 5. Crews are extending Boise's geothermal service to the new Concordia Law School.

Later this month, city crews will move further down Capitol Blvd. when they begin connecting a series of buildings at Boise State to the geothermal system. As a result, portions of Boise State's parking lots on the west side of campus will be periodically closed.
