After the installation of a fence on Capitol Blvd. between the Lusk District and the Boise State University campus, ACHD is changing tactics.

Crews are set to add a pedestrian crossing at Island Ave. that will be activated only when people on foot push a button and request to cross. 

Work is underway now, the new signal is slated to be finished in November.

Student population is booming in the Lusk area - the new crossing will join a new crossing at Royal Blvd constructed last year.
