Move-in day for Boise State University residents is today, Aug. 24.
"Housing and event parking staff will be spread throughout campus to assist in the largest move-in day the university has ever had," said Kathleen Tuck with Boise State University. "Areas of caution include the Lincoln Avenue Parking Garage, as all students and their families are directed to park in the garage prior to moving to their residential building. Cesar Chavez Lane will be limited to those participating in residential move-in and should be avoided from 8 a.m.-3 p.m."
Below is the information from Boise State University on move-in activities -
BRONCO SHUTTLE DETOUR ROUTE
The Bronco Shuttle will be detoured away from the construction on University Drive to southbound on Manitou Avenue, then westbound on Belmont Street and then north on Lincoln Avenue. A map of the new detour and stops is located on the Transportation & Parking website. http://transportation.boisestate.edu/parkalt.shtml#shuttletop
The Bronco Shuttle runs during fall and spring semesters. During peak hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) the shuttle frequency is estimated at every 14 minutes. During non-peak shuttle hours (7 a.m.-8 a.m., 5-10 p.m.) shuttle frequency is approximately every 20 minutes. The last loop of the Bronco Shuttle will begin in the East Stadium parking lot at 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 5:30 p.m. on Friday. The shuttles are affixed with GPS monitors and can be tracked by any mobile device.http://transportation.boisestate.edu/parkshuttle.shtml

BOISE CITY GEOTHERMAL PROJECT — University Drive Closures Continue
The geothermal project on the Boise State University campus is well under way. Construction crews are installing the pipeline to connect Boise State to the City of Boise’s historic geothermal heating system.
Lanes on University Drive between Lincoln and Manitou avenues will be restricted through early September. University Drive will be closed between Lincoln Ave and Michigan Street only on Friday, Aug. 24, to assist with University Housing move-in traffic. Pedestrian crosswalks at Lincoln and Michigan avenues will open for full use.
On Monday, Aug. 27, University Drive will be closed from Lincoln to Manitou avenues. Detour signs have been placed to help navigate around the construction areas. Drivers are encouraged to avoid University Drive and use Beacon Street to access campus.
The bus stops on campus have been relocated due to construction. The Transit Center bus stop is temporarily closed for construction. The temporary bus stop is located on Lincoln Avenue near the intersection with University Drive.
The Morrison Center, the Multipurpose Classroom Building, Interactive Learning Center, Math and Geosciences Building, Administration Building, Student Union Building and Environmental Research Building are connecting as part of the second phase. When completed, approximately 625,000 square feet of building space will be heated using geothermal energy.
UNITED WATER IMPROVEMENTS — University Drive Reduced Traffic Lanes
United Water has teamed up with the geothermal project to reduce resources for their placement of a 16-inch new water main. University Drive from Joyce Street to Lincoln Avenue will continue to be reduced to one-lane traffic through early September for the installment of the new pipes. The Administration lot and Theater Lane, as well as the entrance to the Liberal Arts lot and Library lot, will remain open and unrestricted.
FRIENDSHIP BRIDGE REPAIRS — Cesar Chavez Lane Closed June 15- Mid-September
Friendship Bridge extends from Julia Davis Park to Boise State University by Cesar Chavez Lane. The bridge and Cesar Chavez Lane is closed through mid-September. Cesar Chavez Lane will have limited eastbound traffic from behind the business building to Theater Lane, service vehicle access by Centennial Amphitheatre and Taylor Hall. Vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle detours will be signed through the project to assist in directing traffic around the construction project. Please note that Theater Lane is only for service vehicles on campus and is only open to northbound traffic.
