Main and Fairview Transit Stations and Platforms: The City of Boise, Valley Regional Transit and CCDC are redesigning and constructing improvements at six bus stops along Main St and Fairview Ave between Whitewater Park Blvd and N 16th Street. After no bids were received in response to a formal invitation to bid in April, Agency staff negotiated a contract directly with Wright Brothers, which the CCDC Board then approved at its June 14 Board meeting. Construction is anticipated to start later this summer. Project Lead: Amy Fimbel
2525 W Fairview – St. Luke’s Transit Station – PP Type 4: The construction of St. Luke’s project on 27th and Fairview overlaps with CCDC’s Main and Fairview Transit Stations and Platforms project.
