Pedestrian improvements near Nampa High School set to begin construction June 5

Nampa High Construction Traffic Control Plan

A $1.38 million construction project, that will improve pedestrian safety, add two flashing beacons, and rebuild the road and sidewalks on Lake Lowell Avenue in front of Nampa High School, is scheduled to begin Monday, June 5.

During construction, Lake Lowell Avenue will be limited to one westbound travel lane. Traffic detours will be established to provide an alternative route for eastbound traffic along Lake Lowell Avenue.

Nampa High School summer functions and activities will proceed as planned. However, with Lake Lowell entry points to the high school closed, all summer access will be via the south high school parking lot, from 12th Avenue or West Georgia Avenue.

The project is extensive, Assistant City Engineer Jeff Barnes said, and will include the following improvements:

  • A full-depth roadway reconstruction will occur along the south half of Lake Lowell Avenue.
  • A new ADA compliant, multi-use pathway will replace the existing sidewalk and eliminate sidewalk gaps along the south side of Lake Lowell Avenue.
  • Four existing high school parking lot access points will be removed and replaced with three new approaches.
  • Nampa High School parking lot and drainage improvements will be completed.
  • Separate enhanced pedestrian crosswalks will be constructed across Lake Lowell Avenue near South Canyon Street and Olive Street. The enhanced crosswalks will feature RFBs (Rapid Flashing Beacons)

The contractor, Hawkeye Builders, Inc., is expected to have the bulk of the project wrapped up by Aug. 18 before students return to school on Aug. 23.

The city will provide additional project information throughout the summer on the city’s project webpage at
