Levy Projects

In 2015, Boise voters approved a $10 million levy to support the preservation of open space and the implementation of habitat and clean water improvement projects in areas such as the Boise foothills and the Boise River. The funds from this levy are managed by the Open Space and Clean Water Advisory Committee.

Projects recommended for approval by Boise City Council to receive levy funds include:

Highway 21 Wildlife Overpass

Deer

The project proposes construction of a wildlife overpass at Cerivdae Peak, MP 19.3 on State Highway 21. The City is partnering with the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation (IFWF) on behalf of Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG), Idaho Transportation Department D3 (ITD) and many others to fund this project. This will be Idaho’s 1st wildlife overpass project and since 2016, 77 elk and deer have died due to collisions in the area where the wildlife overpass is proposed.

The total expected cost of the project is approximately $3 million. The City’s contribution is up to $40,000.

The project is currently in the 70% construction document phase. Construction expected to occur in 2022.
