With heavier than expected rainfall and snow melt, the Boise River is running above flood stage, according to the National Weather Service.
Boise Department of Parks and Recreation has since closed sections of the Greenbelt deemed unsafe. At major bridges and other low-lying areas, pedestrians and cyclists are met with detour signs near the quickly moving water, currently at more than 8,000 cubic feet per second at the Glenwood Street bridge.
Pedestrian tunnels beneath Ninth Street, Capitol Boulevard, and Broadway Avenue are unusable. The section from Main Street to Shoreline is currently closed, with posted detours along city streets.
The river is currently at a height of 10.75 feet, above the flood stage of 10.1 feet. The Parks Department website has a full list of Greenbelt closures in the Boise area.
