East End Goat head and dog poop pick up July 25th

It’s that time of year again.  The puncture vines are growing and will soon bedevil mountain bike riders and walkers.  And, the increased use along the foothills trails also means more dog poop near the trails, no thanks to the slobs who don’t pick up after their dogs.  We don’t blame the dogs.  They can’t help it.

We will hold a goat head and dog poop pick up on Saturday, July 25 from 7:30 – 9:30AM.  Plan on meeting at the pump house with water, gloves, shovels and rakes.  Bags will be provided.

More road work on Warm Springs Avenue this coming week (Updated 6/27)

Here’s a note we received concerning some road work on Warm Springs Avenue:

WarmSpringsAve

“FYI… I’m sure you’re starting to see the signs about a new project on Warm Springs Avenue between E. Walling Dr. and Warm Springs Golf Course from 
Sunday June 28th through July 3rd. The road will not be closed, but expect delays.  Flaggers will be used and one lane of traffic will be left open for public.  Construction hours will be from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
 
Residents have been concerned about the driving conditions of the road. The construction company is making repairs prior to ACHD’s Warm Springs Asphalt Overlay project.”
We also received a news release from ACHD on the 27th stating the first roundabout in Harris Ranch is done and the second one a couple weeks out.  Plus, more about Warm Springs Avenue:

Motorists navigating Warm Springs Avenue between E. Walling Drive and the Warm Springs Golf Course can expect delays beginning Monday, June 29th. Titan Technologies, a contractor for the City of Boise will be repairing 150 feet of settled asphalt on this portion of the road; a result of prior utility work. One lane will remain open for the traveling public, and flaggers will be on site to help guide motorists. Construction will take place between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. These repairs must be completed before the road is repaved. This project is expected to be complete by July 3.

Also, beginning next week, Ada County Highway District crews will begin concrete work on Warm Springs Avenue from Broadway Avenue to Starcrest Drive in preparation for the future overlay. Motorists can expect minor lane closures, and flaggers will assist motorists through the construction. Milling and paving will begin in mid-July.

Looking ahead, Conger Management Group has requested the closure of Warm Springs Avenue near Ben’s Crow Inn from July 6 to July 10 for sewer work for the East Valley Subdivision No. 2. Detours will be posted.

We understand that road construction can bring with it inconvenience to motorists, but the end result will be smoother, safer, and longer-lasting roads for all users.
