Sick of Boise Detours? Track Local Construction On This Map
Living in Boise, if you ask us, is simply the best. When we say Boise, of course, we mean the entire 'metro' area--the greater Treasure Valley. Here in our area, the people are kind, safety is a top priority, and there is always something fun going on for just about anyone.
All of this said, we also can't ignore our weather. While it's never the same from hour to hour--it also isn't the same throughout the year. While us locals can joked that Idaho's weather is totally unpredictable and often a little "bipolar"--having four very distinct seasons can be what makes us so special!
There is a fifth season, however. Construction season.
Even in the winter these pesky orange cones tend to be all over town and right now--it especially seems as though the cones have been multiplying.
Detour after detour, we all seem to be finding ourselves needing to re-route our daily travels or commutes because a LOT of work is being done on our roads. Sometimes, driving to places that we frequent often is like muscle memory-- how many times have you found yourself turning around at the same closure sign because you forgot about the road work!?
We recently found out that ACHD has an amazing, living, and interactive map of roadwork that any driver in the Treasure Valley can (and should) use! The map shows projects, their progress, and even what's coming up!
