Constructions crews are looking for Boise motorists' indulgence again as they set up another large crane on Capitol Boulevard, beginning Sunday, Nov. 1 to support construction of the Gardner Company's new City Center Plaza project.

Officials with the Ada County Highway District said the work, taking place between Grove and Main streets, will block the left northbound lane on Capitol Boulevard north of Front Street through the end of December. Motorists are alerted to expect more delays in that block over the next couple of months. An arrow board has already been installed to guide motorists to the right side of the road.

Just a couple of blocks south, ACHD is issuing an additional warning to bicyclists and pedestrians as restrictions will be in place on the east side of Capitol Boulevard between Myrtle and Broad streets.

Additionally, bike lanes and pedestrian restrictions will be in place on the east side of Capitol Boulevard between Myrtle and Broad streets until February 2017, as Big D Construction continues to build a new hotel on the former site of Dunkley Music.
