Be Prepared: Boise Police Announce Traffic Plans for Road to X Games, Pridefest 

Boise Police are preparing for what should be one of the busiest weekends in the city's downtown core, beginning this Friday, June 15, and running through Sunday, June 17. That's when the Road to X Games qualifier will take over Rhodes Skatepark, the Harley Hooligan Race takes over CenturyLink Arena and Pridefest fills Cecil D. Andrus Park in front of the Idaho State Capitol.

In advance of the weekend, BPD has released some details on road closures, beginning as early as Tuesday, June 12.

From Tuesday, June 12, at 6:30 p.m. until the afternoon of Sunday, June 17, the following roads will be closed to accommodate the X Games qualifier:

Additionally, on Friday, June 15, Grove Street will be closed from Capitol Boulevard to Sixth Street (the Basque Block) as Harley Hooligan participants prepare for the competition at CenturyLink Arena. There will also be lane and/or shoulder closures on the I-184 Boise connector inbound and outbound near Rhodes Skate Park.

For the X Games qualifier, a special shuttle will be available so attendees won't have to contend with finding a downtown parking spot. The shuttles, which will begin operating at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 15, and run through Saturday, June 16, will depart from Ann Morrison Park and the city-owned Park & Ride lot at the corner of Fairview Avenue and 25th Street.
