A section of the Boise River Greenbelt near Marianne Williams Park is set to close due to development of the Arboretum at Barber Station by Brighton Corporation.

A segment of the Boise River Greenbelt, near Marianne Williams Park, will soon close down to the public, according to a city of Boise press release.

The approximately 150-foot section of the path is next to the intersection of East ParkCenter Boulevard and East Barber Valley Drive.

Developers of the Arboretum at Barber Station — 162-unit apartment complex with one two-story building and two buildings of four stories each — had allowed access to the Greenbelt through the property until their own project began. That time has now come, the city says, and a chain link fence will soon be installed around the site.

Once the project is finished, the path will remain closed to the public, according to the release.

Access will remain open to all other Greenbelt pathways nearby.
