Public input sought on the future of the State Street Corridor

How should State Street function in the future for motorists, transit, cyclists and pedestrians? This is the question that local agencies want the public to help answer. The State Street Transit and Traffic Operational Plan looks at how State Street from downtown Boise to State Highway 16 should serve the valley’s future transportation needs.

On Thursday, December 2 the public is invited to an open house to ask questions, view ideas and weigh in on proposed improvement options for the near, mid, and long-range future of the State Street corridor. Ideas from the study range from increasing bus service and improving intersections and sidewalk connections, to long-term improvements such as developing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and implementing transit-oriented development along the corridor. The proposed improvements aim to accommodate future traffic volume increases and create a corridor where buses, cars, pedestrians and bikes safely move together. Developing a plan for the future of State Street will allow the cities and transportation agencies to prioritize specific transit and traffic improvements that will develop State Street into an efficient mobility corridor. 

Public Open House
Thursday, December 2 from 5-8:00 p.m.
Riverglen Junior High School
6801 N. Gary Lane, Boise
