Heron Hollow – Wylie Bridge Replacement

According to a letter from ACHD…

Ada County Highway District (ACHD) will be replacing the Wylie Lane bridge over the Boise Valley Canal in the Herron Hollow neighborhood. Construction is anticipated to begin as early as February 13, 2012 and is scheduled for completion on or about May 4, 2012. The project includes the following:

1. Construct new curb, gutter and sidewalk across the bridge

2. Replace the entire existing structure due to deterioration over time

The contract working hours will be between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Weekend work may occur, but will not occur without ACHD approval.
The work may include the following impacts: general construction noise, dust, equipment back up alarms,
and ground vibration. Due to the construction activities, one lane of traffic may be restricted or a
complete closure may be necessary during the duration of the project, however everyone will have access to their homes and businesses via alternate routes from Alamosa Street. A map is attached displaying the approximate location of the improvements. For specific details about the construction schedule, please contact Justin Bledsoe, ACHD Construction Services, at 387‐6283.

If you own property along the project corridor, but do not live there, please pass this information on to your renter or tenant. We regret any inconvenience that this work may cause you, but the project will result in a safer bridge for all users. If you have any questions, please call Adam Zaragoza at 387‐6249.
