The long awaited Beck Road Interchange is expected to begin construction this month. The contractor reported that they anticipate the interchange to be completed by Thanksgiving, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
The project is between the Greyhound Park, Centennial Trail and Jacklin seed. The interchange is estimated to cost $35 million and is the first project in Idaho to utilize the State Tax Anticipated Revenue (STAR), that the legislation approved in 2007.
The legislation allows developers to initially fund projects before being reimbursed through sales tax revenue from the project.
The project is "design-build" meaning the entire project doesn't have to be designed to start construction. That format is expected to expedite the completion date.
