Greenbelt closure sends riders on new course

Just when you thought construction headaches were limited to times when you are in your car, now even popular biking routes have detours.

Roughly 1,000 feet of the Greenbelt along Warm Springs Avenue has been torn out as crews work on the new East ParkCenter bridge. The pathway is being realigned and, when completed, will go under the Walling Ditch Bridge.

Ada County Highway District crews are about half done with the Greenbelt project, but that still means the path is off-limits to those anxious to get out and enjoy the summer-like weather with a cruise up to Lucky Peak.

There is an ACHD-approved detour, though. The route takes bikers and walkers to the south side of the Boise River, near Eckert Road and through Baber Park to the Baybook Court Foot Bridge (more commonly known as the Orange Bridge).

Work on the Greenbelt is scheduled to be finished in early June, and work on the $14-million bridge project should be done this fall.
