Crews finish repair work on geothermal water leak in downtown Boise

The intersection of Fort and 5th streets was closed after a geothermal leak caused damage to the road.

BOISE, Idaho — The Ada County Highway District says the intersection of Fort and 5th streets has reopened and traffic is back to normal after crews repaired a geothermal water leak that occurred on Tuesday.

Drivers should no longer see delays in the area.

A lane restriction was put in place on Fort Street with westbound traffic diverted to the center turn lane through the intersection. There were no restrictions on 5th or Hays streets.

Crews began paving the street Wednesday afternoon to complete the pipe repair. 

Future roadwork will be required to fix the damage caused by the water leak.
