Project Description:

Keller Associates worked with Boise Parks and Recreation, Boise State University, and the Morrison Center to complete the design of the Boise Greenbelt on the Boise State campus from the historic Capital Boulevard bridge past the BSU Morrison Center. Design included realigning the path to match the layout of the adjacent pathway to the east and creating a better travel way for pedestrian and bicycle connections to Capital Boulevard and the under bridge crossing, including a staircase connecting the two paths.

A multimodal plaza overlooking the Boise River was created at the Morrison Center to enhance the experience of the Center’s patrons, providing them with a patio atmosphere that emphasizes the beauty of the passing river. The plaza extends the cultural influence of the Morrison Center beyond its walls and brings music and arts to the pathway ambiance.

Other design features included traffic calming techniques for the adjacent Cesar Chavez Lane to protect the pedestrian users of the pathway and make the drivers more aware of the multiuser environment of the area, pathway lighting to increase traveler safety through the project, landscape architectural features to ensure the congruity of the project context, and utility coordination and relocation for a few major pipelines in the plaza area.
