Boise River floodwater backing up on Glenwood Street
Water from the swollen Boise River is flowing through a small creek behind Memorial Stadium and backing onto Glenwood Street, one of the critical north-south Boise River crossings between Eagle and East Boise.
The water is pooling at Glenwood and Marigold Street near the Garden City City Hall and library.
The water has created a new pond at the entrance to the Boise Riverside RV Park, filled the parking lot at the Unverstiy of Idaho Extension Service and then crept into the Glenwood-Marigold intersection just south of the Glenwood Bridge.
There’s not much the local road agency can do. Ada County Highway District put up a caution sign warning drivers of water on the road.
