Government Way To Close Monday

Government Way, east of U.S. 95, will close Monday, June 22, at 6:30 a.m. for reconstruction of the U.S. 95/Government Way intersection as part of the U.S. 95, Idaho 53 to Ohio Match Road project.

The Government Way access to U.S. 95 will remain closed until July 31 to facilitate the relocation of underground utilities, upgrade storm drains, and realign the pedestrian/bike path. New traffic signals will be installed, and Government Way also will be realigned.

The $13 million project will widen and realign U.S. 95 from Idaho 53 to Ohio Match Road. It's expected to be complete by September 2009.
