Idaho Highway 45 (12th Avenue) resurfacing in Nampa to begin next week

The Idaho Transportation Department will resurface a five-mile section of Idaho Highway 45 (12th Avenue) in Nampa beginning the week of June 18.

This maintenance is designed to seal and protect the roadway surface, and extend the life of the pavement.

Construction is scheduled from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. This schedule is designed to reduce impacts to the traveling public. The project will be complete in August.
The project limit extends from Deer Flat Road into downtown Nampa. Motorists are encouraged to slow down, pay attention, and watch for crews working in the area.

As part of this project, the city of Nampa will construct a median on the highway between Dewey Avenue and Lincoln Avenue. The median is designed to enhance safety and reduce the number of side-angle crashes in this heavily traveled location. A pedestrian signal was also constructed earlier this year in the vicinity.
