        July kicked of the big construction project on memorial drive in Idaho Falls along the greenbelt; now that project is coming to an end.

After years of planning; the greenbelt along memorial drive is finished.

“Well first of all you’re going to see traffic moving a lot more easily; we don’t have the big line of parked cars in between; one lane going one way and one lane going the other; now you have a normal two lane road and it’s flowing well” said Executive Director of Downtown Development Corporation Bob Everhart.

Another aspect is the new round-about; which was designed to help traffic flow between Memorial Drive and the LDS Temple.

Safer walkways have also been put in; they’re a lot larger than the old ones and they’re better marked.

“You know it’s very exciting; you always expect a certain amount of negative comments; you know I have not had one; everybody that’s seen it has talked about how well it flows; what a great asset it’s going to be; we’re now going to be able to hold a lot more events there; it’s really going to be very nice” continued Everhart.

The city of Idaho Falls along with the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Development Corporation will be holding a ribbon cutting on December 11th at 4 p.m. at the Parks and Rec building.
