The city of Nampa will begin rebuilding 6th Street North from 1st Avenue North to 16th Avenue North Wednesday, June 13. The $2 million dollar construction project will improve the roadway and utilities in the area and will be completed in phases to minimize impacts to the public.
While the public will be inconvenienced during construction, Nampa Project Manager, Jeff Barnes hopes they see the value in the investment. “The city has aging infrastructure so we are taking a proactive approach to fix multiple issues at the same time. By replacing old utility piping and reconstructing the roadway as one project, we enhance our service to residents while improving mobility and safety for everyone.”
The phases include:
• Phase 1 11th Avenue North to 16th Avenue North June - August
• Phase 2A Alleyway between 9th Avenue North and 10th Avenue North to 11th Avenue North October
• Phase 2B 7th Avenue North to alleyway between 9th Avenue North and 10th Avenue North November - December
• Phase 3A 5th Avenue North to 7th Avenue North September
• Phase 3B 1st Avenue North to 5th Avenue North August - September The city will allow the contractor to work on a maximum of two phases at the same time. There will be a three-week period starting at the end of July when phases 1 and 3B are completely closed.
During the rest of the project the contractor can only completely close the roadway on one phase at a time. Detours will be put into place and two-way traffic will be maintained on streets adjacent to any full closures. Access to local businesses, residents, and churches will be maintained.
Construction is scheduled to be completed by December 2016.
