Construction for a signalized intersection at the Midland Boulevard and Roosevelt intersection started this week. The project will increase traffic safety, reduce bottlenecks, and improve pedestrian access at the congested intersection.
Improvements include a new traffic signal, pedestrian ramp upgrades, minor utility work and street lighting improvements.
Drivers can expect delays as the corners of the intersection are reconstructed and utilities are installed. Most of the work will be conducted near the outside lanes of the roadway. The interior road will not be rebuilt as part of the project — reducing impacts to traffic. Reduced speeds, temporary traffic lanes and flaggers will be used during construction. Estimated completion date is October 2016.
The Midland Boulevard & Roosevelt Avenue project is part of Nampa’s Citywide Transportation Master Plan, a 25-year blueprint to provide a safe, efficient and sustainable transportation system.
The Roosevelt & Midland Intersection project was awarded to Hawkeye Builders, Inc. for $702,757. Impact fees will provide the funding for this project. Total anticipated costs, which includes design, is estimated at $802,387.
