A rough patch of a popular road was supposed to get fixed in 2017. Why it’s still on hold

When crews set out to chipeal roads in 2016, they skipped a big chunk of Warm Springs Ave. as it winds its way around the base of the mesa.

The stretch of pavement is especially bumpy thanks in part to work to extend a sewer line in 2015. Now, nearly four years later the road is still a rough ride.

A former Ada County Highway District spokesperson told us the road would get a pavement overlay in the summer of 2017 which would help smooth out the road segment.

But that didn’t happen.

“When the bid came back to construct, it was over budget, and this segment… was dropped,” Natalie Shaver with ACHD said. Another stretch, Warm Springs from Glacier to Highway 21 also got put on ice with the extra expense. So 2017 came and went – and drivers will have to wait a few more years.

“Both segments have been reprogrammed back into our FY21 Federal Aid Capital Maintenance project and will be built then,” she said.
