Heads up for those traveling to College of Western Idaho's (CWI) Nampa Campus locations this summer! The Idaho Center Boulevard and Cherry Lane intersection will be closed starting Tuesday, May 16 to construct a new multi-lane roundabout.
Throughout the project traffic will be detoured around the area (see detour map attached), to intersections such as Ustick Road and Idaho Center Boulevard or Franklin Road and Idaho Center Boulevard, however local access to residential properties and businesses around the project will be available.
The City of Nampa identified this as a priority project for regional connectivity and to increase capacity through the intersection. In addition to a roundabout, the project will also include enhanced pedestrian crossings, connection for future pedestrian pathways, street lighting to illuminate the roundabout and crossings, and installation of new stormwater facilities.
For those who travel through the Idaho Center and Cherry intersection, please plan accordingly. This project is anticipated to be finished by early September 2023.
