A portion of the Greenbelt, near Plantation Island, is closed due to safety hazards caused by flooding.

Two more sections of the Greenbelt were closed Monday due to flooding and water flow on the Boise River reaching 5,890 cubic feet per second.

The section of the Greenbelt and a gravel nature path near Marianne Williams Park, between East Parkcenter Boulevard and South Eckert Road, is closed because there is standing water on the path and Greenbelt.

Additionally, part of the path between Glenwood Street and Veterans Memorial Parkway is closed until further notice. That segment is near the bridges between Plantation Island and Expo Idaho. Detour signs will go up Tuesday.

The small portion of the Greenbelt on Plantation Island is owned by the Idaho Foundation for Parks and Lands.

CORRECTION: The closure between Glenwood and Veterans Memorial will not end Tuesday, as was originally reported.
