MERIDIAN, Idaho — A traffic alert for drivers who use Chinden Boulevard. The Idaho Transportation Department announced that paving the south side of Chinden Boulevard, from Linder Road to Meridian Road, has started.
When complete, this one-mile stretch of highway will be restriped for four lanes, two in each direction and reopen in its final configuration by early summer. The shared-used pathway on the south side of Chinden will also open at this time.
Work will occur roughly between 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. with additional night work in the intersections.
Drivers should expect delays at peak travel time during construction and allow extra time to reach their destination. Motorists are urged to drive with caution through construction areas.
