Traffic Pattern to Change Near Center for Fine Arts Construction Site

By: Cienna Madrid   Published 7:28 am / June 29, 2017

The construction fence line for work on Boise State University’s Center for Fine Arts will temporarily change as early as June 30 and will run several weeks, through July 14, for deep utility work. Portions of the east fence line will be shifted farther east causing a change in current traffic patterns in the area. A new temporary drive lane will be created and clearly marked to allow through traffic on Earle Street and access to the West Towers lot.

A minimal amount of parking stalls will be removed to create the temporary drive lane. Construction is currently taking place at all hours of the day, causing increased traffic at times. Drivers are asked to remain cautious while in the area, follow all detours and utilize the dedicated drive lane as needed. Pedestrians are not permitted to walk in the drive lane and are asked to follow all pedestrian detours.

Earle Street will remain open to vehicle traffic, as will the east portion of the West Towers lot, and Brady Street Garage. Both the West Towers lot and Brady Street Garage still can be accessed by Earle Street and Brady Street.

As construction continues the fence line will shift, and when possible drive lanes will be created to ensure through traffic from Earle Street. Directional signage will be placed and detours will be clearly marked.
