Boise GreenBikes adds additional parking locations at Boise State University
The Boise GreenBike system recently added five new Flex Hub bike parking locations on the campus of Boise State University. These new hubs allow GreenBike users to lock up the bikes without paying the $2 out-of-hub fee. The new locations are: on the southeast corner of the Micron Business and Economics Building, across the street from the Brady Street Parking Garage; in front of the Morrison Center; on Bronco Lane in front of the Kinesiology Building; to the south of the Environmental Research Building; on the northwest corner of Albertsons Library near the Friendship Bridge.
Previously, there were only two station hub locations where the bikes could be returned without an additional fee: in front of the Student Union Building, and at the Interactive Learning Center. The new locations use existing bicycle racks that are identified as Flex Hub locations with Boise GreenBike stickers and sign panels. A Flex Hub can be used for both regular bikes and Boise GreenBike.

Updates available on planned Broadway Avenue Bridge Replacement
The existing bridge is more than 50 years old and needs to be rebuilt to meet today's standards, When complete, the new Broadway Avenue Bridge will include more lanes for traffic, wider sidewalks, new bicycle lanes and enhanced connectivity to the Greenbelt. Broadway Avenue also will be rebuilt between University Drive and Front Street.
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) worked with the community for several years to develop design plans for the Broadway Bridge Replacement Project. The design plans are posted at: www.itd.idaho.gov/BroadwayBridge/
Construction is expected to begin in late December 2015. As construction gets closer, ITD will provide more information about impacts and detour routes. The ValleyRide bus routes that will be impacted during construction are routes 2,18, 40, 43 and 44.
