High Water Closes Sections of Greenbelt


Warmer temperatures and more precipitation in the forecast have law enforcement keeping a close eye on the Boise River. Already, two sections of the Greenbelt in Southeast Boise have been closed by high water.

Temporary closures include the Bethine Church River Trail from the Cottonwood Apartments east to Bown Crossing, and Loggers Creek Bridge from Leadville Avenue east past the West Parkcenter Bridge.

As of late Saturday, the Boise River was running over 9.2 feet, with a flood stage of 10 feet.

The National Weather Service office in Boise is calling for more showers likely after midnight in the Treasure Valley, continuing into Monday morning. A small stream flood advisory is in effect for parts of Blaine County in central Idaho, including the communities of Bellevue and Carey.
