Bishop Foote Guest house set to move this weekend

 

The Bishop Foote Guest house at St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center is on track to continue its move to a new location this weekend.

The historic home is currently parked on East Jefferson Street between Avenue B and 1st Street. It’s being relocated to Avenue B and Bannock Street.

Crews started moving the 304-ton brick home May 3rd but encountered several mechanical issues along the way.

The new moving date is this Saturday and Sunday.

Avenue B will be completely closed until the home is safely placed in its new location. Crews hope to have enough work complete Saturday night to open at least one lane in each direction on Avenue B. They intend to finish up the remaining work Sunday in order to have the road fully open in time for the Monday commute.

There is no custom code to display.

When I was a kid, I often was invited to the movies with my older brothers. NOT ALWAYS, but on occasion, either my Mom bribed them or forced them to take little Ricky to the movies. It should not come as a surprise that my older brothers would take one of those opportunities to scare…
