BOISE – Crews will begin setting girders for the new Broadway Bridge in Boise on Thursday, March. 17th and that may affect your commute.  

The Idaho Transportation Department says to expect traffic control and flagging on Broadway Avenue and Myrtle Street to accommodate the oversize loads delivering the steel girders. Intermittent rolling slowdowns also will occur on I-84 in east Boise and on the connector.

ITD says work will continue through mid-April. Work on the girders will occur during the day, and neighbors can expect to hear higher than normal noise volumes from heavy equipment.

In all, 30 steel girders are being placed to support the deck of the new Broadway Bridge. From end to end, the girders measure about 422 feet long.
