Utility Work to Begin in mid-September

Starting in November the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) will begin construction on the Cole and Victory ThrU -Turn Intersection Project that includes widening Cole Road between Victory Road and McGlochlin Street. In preparation for that work, some trees will be cleared so Idaho Power can relocate their power poles. Work is expected to begin within the next two weeks.

The utility work will be done during the day and there will be lane restrictions with flaggers as necessary.

As the November construction time frame nears, please watch your mailbox for more specifics on what neighbors and commuters can expect during the road widening project.

August 24, 2017 Open House

All the materials and handouts from the August 24, 2017 open house can be found under "Related Documents" to the right of your screen. Below are three videos that show how a Median U-Turn (ThrU-Turn) intersection works:

General Description:

  • Construct a Median U-Turn (ThrU-Turn) intersection at Cole and Victory. The new intersection will feature additional vehicle travel lanes, controlled access with raised curb, bike lanes, and curb, gutter and sidewalk. The design also moves some left-turning vehicles away from the intersection to improve how the intersection operates.
  • Widen Cole from Victory to McGlochlin to two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane, curb, gutter, sidewalk and bike lanes. The design also includes a signalized pedestrian crossing at Diamond Street.
