A lazy afternoon at Rhodes Skate Park in Downtown Boise

The homeless camp near Boise's most urban park is gone, and a million-dollar renovation is done, but the homeless still hang out in the area during the day, and clashes with the skateboarders are rare.

If you’re planning to drive in the neighborhood of Boise’s Rhodes Skate Park this week, keep in mind that one of Boise’s biggest two-day events in recent memory will be happening there.

ESPN is putting on an X Games qualifier at Rhodes Park, which has gained acclaim in the skateboarding community for being one of the top skate parks in the world. Events start Friday, but road closures around the park go into effect at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Here’s where roads will be closed:

▪  15th Street from River Street to Grove Street. Westbound traffic can continue on River Street to Americana Boulevard.

▪  16th Street from Front Street to River Street. Southbound traffic on 16th Street can turn right on Front Street.
