State and Collister Intersection

Construction Update

We are officially moving right along for the first phase of the State and Collister project. The State/Collister project is being constructed in coordination with the State Street Bridge #1408 project (near North Street). The State Street Bridge #1408 project will replace the bridge over the Boise Valley Canal on State Street, west of the Collister/State intersection. Utility work for that project has already begun and the traffic swap happen, Saturday, November 17th. Traffic will be pushed to the south side of State Street to allow for work on the north side of State Street. ACHD will provide updates on that project as part of these emails.  

A word about Utility Relocations: 

Utility relocations will be ongoing throughout construction. These relocations are being done by several different utility companies. This work is done outside of the ACHD contract but in coordination with ACHD's work. It can often be a juggling act as numerous entities need to share or move in the same space. ACHD and the contractor work with these entities to coordinate and keep the project on schedule!


Ongoing Work: 

Business Access and access to local residence will be maintained. Look for the orange and black BUSINESS ACCESS signage showing the access points to the local businesses. 

  • Work on the Farmers Union Canal on the northern portion
    • Storm sewer canal crossing
    • Partial bridge removal
    • Removal of unsuitable materials
    • Foundation preparation
  • North State Street Improvements
    • Storm sewer installation
    • Preparations for temporary paving, paving is expected in early/mid December 


Please note, the schedule above is very dependent upon weather and may change. 



We want to remind you that safety is a team effort. The contractor is making all possible accommodations to provide a safe work zone for all users but we appreciate your help in the process. When in the work zone remember these important tips:

  • Stay alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Make eye contact with construction workers and flaggers
  • Follow posted signage 

Thank you for your patience and partnership as we maintain a safe work zone!

City of Boise: Community Conversations

During the previous series held in June and August, citizens from across Boise came together to discuss and chart Boise’s future by developing and exploring the four major themes of housing affordability, transportation, preserving what makes Boise so special and governance/transparency. 


This third series of Community Conversations delves deeper into housing affordability throughout the city. Residents will provide feedback on a variety of tools and techniques the city is considering implementing, which will help shape Boise’s future. 


The city will host two opportunities for the third series, with the second session including Spanish translation services. Both workshops are open to all Boise residents and each session will include the same material so residents only need to sign up for one session.


Workshop capacity has also been expanded, allowing more individuals to attend and share feedback. Interested residents should register no later than November 28th through the following links.
