Near Elijah Drain Southside & Marcum
The Elijah Drain is one such project recently completed with $1 million of grant funding from the ITD’s Local Strategic Initiatives (LSI) grant administered by the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC). The Elijah Drain project was previously funded and not included in the grants listed on page 2. The project rebuilt the deteriorated Elijah Drain culvert and failed asphalt roadway surface, widened Greenhurst to three-lanes with curb, gutter and sidewalk on the south side of the road. The road was closed to traffic in July and reopened to traffic at the end of October, three weeks ahead of schedule and within budget. Total cost for the project was $1,413,708 and with $1 million in grant funding, only $413,708 cost to Nampa.
The City would like to thank the community, especially the adjacent property owners, for their patience during construction. LHTAC and the City have planned a brief ribbon cutting at 11:00 a.m. November 19 near the Elijah Drain on Southside and Marcum. The public is invited to attend.
