A look at what the future may hold for the Center Street Underpass will be the topic of an open house next week.

Monday, November 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Pocatello City Council Chambers, 911 N. 7th Avenue City of Pocatello staff and employees of Jacobs Engineering and Myers Anderson Architects will update the community on the project currently scheduled to begin in 2023. The informal meeting will feature a review of the project to date and a question and answer session. Comment from the public will also be taken at the open house.

“The open house is a chance for the public to review preliminary drawings and learn more about the rehabilitation of this important connection to Old Town Pocatello,” said Maggie Clark, Project Manager.

Currently, the project is slated to feature a pedestrian bridge across Center Street, new railings as well as retaining walls and tunnel facades, upgrades to the drainage system, concrete repairs and more.

The Center Street Underpass was built in 1934 and replaced an elevated viaduct that connected the east and west sides of Pocatello.
