Ada County continues its repairs of the Greenbelt as another section will be closed starting October 25, 2017-June 22, 2018.  The Penitentiary Canal project will involve installing an irrigation pipe and widening and smoothing the  asphalt for users.The closer will run between Warm Springs, near Shakespeare Way to Diversion Dam. The project will create 1.65 miles of 11’ wide, center line striped asphalt pathway with 2’ wide recovery shoulders.  The current  pathway has steep and hazardous shoulders with a cracking, potholed surface that has failed extensively due to age and erosion. Complete closure of the pathway is required during construction in order to place the irrigation pipe and rebuild the surface to appropriate standards.

This section will be completely closed to all users during construction. There will be no posted detour routes on adjacent roadways. All pathway users are instructed to turn around at the barricades.

Ada County asks that you respect all closures so that crews can complete the project on time.
