Boise River Rising, Two Sections of Greenbelt Closed

Posted By on Thu, Apr 7, 2011 at 8:51 AM

The streamflows at the Boise River near Glenwood Bridge have tripled in the past week. As of this morning, flows were running nearly 6,000 cubic feet per second. With a 60 percent chance of more precipitation today, the river isn't expected to abate any time soon.

Due to the high flows on the Boise River, two sections of the Greenbelt in Southeast Boise have been closed. City officials have closed the path near Loggers Creek footbridge and another stretch on the Bethine Church River Trail between Riverstone Lane and East Gossamer Lane. Signs are posted to warn pedestrians about hazardous conditions.

For updates on river flows, access the U.S. Geological Survey's real-time data.
