A $1.38 million construction project, that will improve pedestrian safety, add two flashing beacons, and rebuild the road and sidewalks on Lake Lowell Avenue in front of Nampa High School, is scheduled to begin Monday, June 5.
During construction, Lake Lowell Avenue will be limited to one westbound travel lane. Traffic detours will be established to provide an alternative route for eastbound traffic along Lake Lowell Avenue.
Nampa High School summer functions and activities will proceed as planned. However, with Lake Lowell entry points to the high school closed, all summer access will be via the south high school parking lot, from 12th Avenue or West Georgia Avenue.
The project is extensive, Assistant City Engineer Jeff Barnes said, and will include the following improvements:
The contractor, Hawkeye Builders, Inc., is expected to have the bulk of the project wrapped up by Aug. 18 before students return to school on Aug. 23.
