Ongoing projects on the Boise State campus will affect traffic over the next several weeks.
The second phase of the Universitys geothermal project will begin on Monday. Lane restrictions along University Drive between Lincoln and Manitou avenues will be in effect through Aug. 27.
The left turn lane for eastbound traffic on University will be closed at Lincoln. Detour signs will be in place at the intersection of University and Lincoln in order to direct traffic around the construction road closures. If possible, avoid University and use Beacon Street to access campus.
Construction crews are installing pipeline to connect Boise State University to the City of Boises historic geothermal heating system. As part of this second phase, the Morrison Center, Multipurpose Classroom Building, Interactive Learning Center, Math and Geosciences Building, Administration Building, Student Union Building and Environmental Research Building are connecting to the geothermal heating system. When the project is completed, approximately 625,000 square feet of campus building space will be heated using geothermal energy.
In conjunction with the geothermal project, United Water will simultaneously install a new 16-inch water main. University from Lincoln to Juanita Street, will continue to be reduced to one lane in both directions through early September.
It is anticipated that University Drive will be back to normal traffic flows by mid-September.
The Friendship Bridge, which extends from Julia Davis Park to the Boise State University campus, and Cesar Chavez Lane will continue to be restricted through mid-September.
Cesar Chavez will have limited eastbound traffic access from behind the Business Building to Theater Lane, a service vehicle-only access drive located between the Centennial Amphitheater and Taylor Hall. Vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic detour signage will be in place to assist with navigation around the construction project.
University housing move-in day is Aug. 24.
Housing and event parking staff will be spread throughout campus to assist with the largest move-in day the university has ever coordinated.
Areas of caution include the Lincoln Avenue Garage, as all students and their families are directed to park in the garage prior to moving into their assigned residence hall.
Cesar Chavez Lane will be limited to residence hall move-in traffic only and should be avoided between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. For more Move-in Day information, visit http://housing.boisestate.edu/movein/arrival.html.
