Linder Road to Meridian Road

Linder Road to Meridian Road improvements are needed to promote safety and increase capacity in this growing region of Idaho.

Over the next few years the Idaho Transportation Department will be making improvements to Chinden Boulevard (U.S. 20/26) between Linder Road and Meridian Road. Construction is part of the Linder Village development. ITD created a Sales Tax Anticipation Revenue (STAR) Agreement with the developer to pay for this work.

Chinden Boulevard, a section of U.S. 20/26, is one of the few east-west commuter routes that connects Boise to Interstate 84 in Caldwell. The majority of Chinden between I-84 and Eagle Road is a two-lane rural highway. As the land around the roadway develops, Chinden is becoming a busy urban corridor, particularly between Ten Mile Road and Eagle.

Road Construction Begins Next Week

The widening of Chinden from two to four lanes between Linder Road and Meridian Road begins next week as crews begin work in the road shoulder with minimal impact to the traveling public.

In April, crews will shift traffic and install temporary barriers at night. Traffic will be reduced to one lane with flagger control. Residents can expect moderate illumination and noise impacts. Traffic will resume to normal construction zone conditions (45 mph) in the morning.
