Boise’s Cloverdale Bridge to Open a Year After Deadly Crash
Remember the awful fiery crash that happened back in June near the Cloverdale Bridge in Boise that took the lives of four people and destroyed the overpass? Well, there has been a lot of work done to get the bridge back up and running; and according to KTVB, the Ada County Highway District will reopen the bridge on June 17, 2019. Almost exactly one year after the deadly accident.
It won't look the same, however, ACHD and the Idaho Transportation Department teamed up to pay for the nearly $10.8 million price tag for the bridge that will soon have "two lanes in each direction, with shoulders and a shared wide sidewalk bike path that's going to be used by both pedestrians and bicyclist.” The bridge which was originally built in the 1960s will soon double in size.
