Downtown Nampa construction on schedule for August completion

The city of Nampa is on target to complete construction of 2nd and 3rd Streets South from 12th Avenue to 16th Avenue South in August. The rebuild was badly needed to improve the pavement surface and underground utilities critical to maintaining a vibrant downtown area.

Knowing the roadway needed to be completely rebuilt, the city used the opportunity to take care of major utility upgrades at the same time. Those upgrades are extensive and include replacement of:

  • Water valves, hydrants and mains
  • Pressure irrigation
  • Conduit for lighting and power

“We appreciate the community’s patience and support as we’ve worked hard to improve the downtown core. I think people will be very pleased with the finished product.” says Jeff Barnes, the city’s Assistant Engineer.

In a recent community survey conducted by the city, the majority of respondents stated their number one priority was improving roads. Rebuilding 2nd and 3rd Streets South has been a major infrastructure improvement, but the newly rehabilitated roadways and utilities will benefit city residents and downtown businesses for years to come.

Enhancements to sidewalk corners will make the area much more attractive and inviting and are important to the economic development and sustainability of the area. When complete, the improvements will fit the Downtown Historic Streetscape Standards and comply will the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), making it easier for all citizens to access Downtown Nampa businesses and services.

Access to businesses is open and the city has arranged for two hours of free parking for customers in the Stampede Lot at 1218 2nd St. S. Customers can also park for one hour free in the Downtown Garage adjacent to the Nampa Library.

The city will continue to provide updates about the project at http://cityofnampa.us/projects/downtown. If you have questions, please call 208-465-2221 or email projects@cityofnampa.us.
