Project Facts

Project Number: A011(236)
Key Number: 11236

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is performing design work for a new highway extending Idaho 16 from U.S. 20/26 (Chinden Blvd) to Idaho 44 (State Street). This project will require a new Boise River crossing and a connection with Idaho 44 across undeveloped property.

Description

The new highway will provide a north-south connection in the Treasure Valley between US-20/26 (Chinden Blvd) and SH-44 (State St). It is the first step toward extending Idaho 16 south from its intersection with Idaho 44 to connect with I-84.

The project has been phased into three separate projects:

  1. Key Number 12915: Idaho 16, Boise River Bridge and North Stage

    · The project will construct a new highway from Idaho 44 near the intersection with existing Idaho 16 to just south of the Boise River including a 1730 foot bride to cross the Boise River.

  2. Key Number 12916: Idaho 16, INT SH-44, US-20 and Local Roads

    · This project will construct a new local road system to replace access served by the extension of the SH-16 to the south.

  3. Key Number 12917: Phyllis Canal Bridge and South Stage

    · This project will construct a new highway near the intersection of McDermott Road and US-20/26 to just south of the Boise River Bridge, including structures crossing the Phyllis Canal and Joplin Road.

Background

An environmental study began in 2006 to locate the new extension of Idaho 16. The study produced an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that identifies the alignment. Click here to learn more about this study.
