Northwest Boulevard reduced to one lane beginning Aug. 29

Now that the road and sidewalk infrastructure project is complete along River Avenue, the Education Corridor construction will move north.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 29, a portion of Northwest Boulevard will be restricted to one lane as work begins on the installation of a new traffic signal at Northwest Boulevard and Hubbard Street. Motorists should expect delays when traveling in this vicinity.

West Hubbard Street will be closed. Students, employees, and visitors may access the University of Idaho and Lewis-Clark State College at the Harbor Center through the North Idaho College campus, by turning onto Military Drive from River Avenue and cutting across the former log yard to connect with Hubbard and the entrance to the Harbor Center at Academic Way.

A portion of Hubbard Street to the east of Northwest Boulevard will also be closed, restricting access to parking lots for the businesses in that area. Alternative access will be available via Lincoln Way.

The project is expected to be completed by Oct. 3.
