Construction on the Broadway Bridge in Downtown Boise is expected until last until early fall. Here's the latest view of the progress.

Starting Monday morning, the Idaho Transportation Department will close lanes at the Boise intersection of Broadway Avenue and Front Street.

The restrictions will be in place day and night until mid-August. Lanes will be closed as crews build an island at the intersection. Once the island is complete, a free-running right-turn will be in place from southbound Broadway onto Front.

The Broadway Avenue Bridge is being replaced to meet current design standards as well as current and future traffic volume, ITD reports.. When complete, the new Broadway Bridge will include more lanes for traffic, wider sidewalks, bicycle lanes and improved access to the Greenbelt.

Construction is expected to be complete in early fall.

Crews have completed the foundation of the new Broadway Bridge and are building the deck. Construction of the bridge and road improvements to Broadway Avenue will continue through the summer. This video from the Idaho Transportation Department ex
