Douglas County and the Meridian Metropolitan District are working together with the Southeast Public Improvement District (SPIMD) on implementing the intersection improvements. Project partners recognize the benefits of advancing the proposed improvements which will re-align the short segment of Havana Street to better balance the heavy traffic volumes headed both to the east and to the west at the nearby Meridian Boulevard intersection, and re-align the Meridian Boulevard so the north-south heavier traffic volume becomes the through movement.
Meridian / Havana Intersection Improvements (Updated April 2021)
This $9 Million improvement project involves realigning Havana and Meridian Boulevard in order to reduce congestion and improve safety and traffic operations. In 2020, the District’s consultant prepared the preliminary design layout and the County’s consultant performed the initial surface utility engineering investigation.
The final design consultant selection process was completed in December 2020, and the County awarded a design contract to HDR in February 2021. Currently, the County’s design team is working with the Meridian Metro District to determine where to relocate utilities that are in conflict with proposed roadway improvements. Additionally, the design team is in the process of developing construction phasing plans and assessing what road closures will be needed when construction starts in late 2021 or early 2022. Utility relocations will need to occur before most of the major roadway improvements can be initiated
