Going up: Revamp of Downtown Boise’s 6th Street nears completion

Idaho AGC Going Up

Work on the revamp of 6th St. between Main St. and Front St. continues, and will wrap up in early June – ahead of schedule. The Capital City Development Corp. launched the project, just one part of nearly $11 million in upgrades in the pipeline along Grove St.

“It’s ahead of schedule,” CCDC Executive Director John Brunelle said during an April public meeting. “I think the fact that there’s been less traffic has been helpful for the construction crews and contractors.”

The project includes upgraded streetscapes along 6th Street and a revamped intersection at Grove St. where it meets the Basque Block. New street lights, pedestrian upgrades, bike ranks, and new seating also will go in.

Construction crews closed the street to vehicle traffic and some pedestrian traffic to complete the work.

The agency said the work should wrap by mid-June.
