Meridian Road to Locust Grove Road

Four uninterrupted lanes of traffic, two-in-each-direction, from Eagle Road to State Highway 16, is scheduled for completion, as the remaining 2-lane segment between Locust Grove and Meridian Road will begin in September 2022 with utility work and clearing the right-of-way.

This phase will continue through December. Road reconstruction will begin when temperatures allow, estimated in February. All work will wrap up in early summer 2023. During construction, one lane in each direction will remain open through the construction zone however motorists can expect shoulder work, reduced speeds, periodic lane closures and flagger control with occasional night work. Specific updates regarding schedule and potential impacts will be provided to residents and businesses in the area.

Background

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.
