GARDEN CITY, Idaho — The Ada County Highway District is holding an open house Thursday to give the public a chance to learn more about the upcoming construction on the Cole and Victory intersection project.

This project, which is expected to begin later this month, includes constructing a median U-turn (also known as a “thrU-turn”) and widening Cole Road from Victory to McGlochlin.

The open house will be held Thursday, November 7th from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hampton Inn and Suites at 7499 W. Overland Road.

“This an open house with no formal presentation, but project plans will be on display and staff will be on hand to answer any questions,” said ACHD spokesperson Natalie Shaver.

According to the ACHD website, work is anticipated to occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. At the intersection crews will be allowed to work 24 hours a day. Some night and weekend work is expected.
The work will include temporary closures, lane restrictions, general construction noise, dust, equipment backup alarms, and ground vibration.

Drivers are being asked to use caution with traveling through the intersection. Left turns onto Victory Road from Cole Road will be restricted for the duration of construction.

Access to businesses will remain open at all times, although ACHD officials say ingress and egress may be shifted to accommodate construction. If business access will be impacted, the contractor will coordinate with adjacent businesses.
