The large reader board sign on Broadway Ave. at Boise State in the Albertsons Stadium parking lot has seen better days.
Originally part of a pair of signs (with the other long-since removed on Capitol Blvd.), it looms large near the new Broadway Bridge.
But since crews began work to replace that bridge in late 2015, the sign has been dormant. The electronic reader board used to display a steady stream of notes about campus and events. The bridge project is done and open – but the sign is still dark.
It also features an old logo officially replaced more than four years ago with the “B” logo.
The sign will get a new look – eventually.
“We are in the early stages of the revamp – still exploring the options,” Kristen Rogers with Boise State’s communications office told BoiseDev. “It’s in the works, but at this point, it’s just too soon for timelines.”
