Public Hearing on Alder Creek Bridge

Boise County to Receive Comment on South Fork Payette River Bridge at January 9 Hearing

GARDEN VALLEY – Boise County will hold a public hearing on the South Fork Payette River Bridge project, Monday, January 9, 2012, between 4 and 6 p.m., at the Crouch Community Hall, 342 Village Circle. Bridge reconstruction is scheduled for 2012.

At the hearing, project information will be provided in an open house format and a hearing officer will be available to take oral or written testimony.
