The opening of Whitewater Park Boulevard allows for changes to 27th Street between Main and State streets, alterations designed to return it to its original character. This is a joint project between the Ada County Highway District, the City of Boise and the Capital City Development Corporation.

Work will also be completed on 27th Street between Fairview Avenue and Main Street.
This project came from the 30th Street Area Master Plan. The plan calls for 27th Street to become a neighborhood commercial district, improving safety and accessibility for residents and businesses.
The completion of Whitewater Park Boulevard (also known as the 30th Street Extension) will reduce commuter traffic on 27th Street. With lower traffic volumes the 27th Street area will become a more pedestrian friendly, residential and mixed commercial district. Learn more about the development of Whitewater Park Boulevard .
