State Route 45 Project

August 18, 2015

On behalf of the City of Nampa, I want to express my thanks and appreciation to the Idaho Transportation Department for your excellent work on the State Route 45 (12th Ave South) – Deer Flat to 3rd Street South Resurfacing project. The City recognizes ITD’s efforts in planning, allocation of funding, design and construction management resulting in a job well done.

The SH 45 Project is another critical investment toward both ITD’s and the City of Nampa’s continued efforts to provide a safe, efficient, and sustainable transportation system that responds to the current and future goals of our state and community. Projects such as this contribute to the economic vitality of our City, helping to further create the kinds of vibrant community where people want to live and businesses want to grow.

The new asphalt road surface and pedestrian facilities benefit 30,000 local and regional motorists per day, public transportation services and a growing bike and pedestrian community. In particular, the new pedestrian hybrid beacon crosswalk light at Nampa High School and Colorado Avenue will support safe access for hundreds of students and other pedestrians each day. We are thankful for ITD’s desire and willingness to collaborate with both the City of Nampa and the Nampa School District to address an important need, especially that which improves the safety of our kids.

Thank you ITD staff and the contractor, Idaho Sand & Gravel, for their consideration of the community needs during construction, attention to the quality of the improvements and emphasis to maintain the project schedule.

We greatly appreciate your investment of time and resources into our community and look forward to continued partnership in the future.
