Today the Ada County Highway District began moving dirt on it’s latest intersection improvement in Meridian.  The project was identified in the 2002 North Meridian Traffic Study and is scheduled to be complete in mid-August 2011.

The Area has been a four way stop with constant congestion due to the growth of the nearby neighborhoods such as Saguaro Canyon, Heritage Commons, Copper Basin, Havasu Creek, Settlers Bridge, and many others.  The improvements should bring needed relief for area residents.  Although the construction will be inconvenient, as a resident that uses it on a daily basis, I look forward to it’s completion.

Stay tuned for regular updates on the progress of construction and more photos.
