BOISE -- Construction work in downtown Boise is closing several bus stops, starting Tuesday and continuing until further notice.

Officials with Valley Regional Transit say the construction will close a five-block area on Main and Idaho Streets that's currently used as a staging area for buses. Until construction is complete routes 1-3, 6-11, 14, and 16-17 will stage on Idaho Street between Capitol and 9th. Routes 4-5 will stage on 9th Street north of Grove Street.

This construction is part of a project to build a downtown Boise mulitmodal center near the corner of Capitol Boulevard and Main Street. The underground center will be a hub for buses, bikes and pedestrians.
