Public Input Sought on Future Transportation Projects in Downtown Boise

Boise- Mini-roundabouts, converting some one-way streets to two-ways and adding bike facilities – they’re just three of the potential transportation projects for downtown Boise that the Ada County Highway District and City of Boise want people to learn more about and provide input on at an open house this Wednesday.

ACHD, the City, along with the Downtown Boise Association, Capital City Development Corporation, and Valley Regional Transit are creating a plan for the downtown Boise area that will help coordinate roadway projects that are proposed, planned or have been requested. The plan will also create a timeline of when improvements will happen. Click here to view a map of the project area boundaries.

This Wednesday, people are invited to attend an interactive public open house where they will be encouraged to identify locations they think various improvements, such as the addition of bike lanes are needed. They will also be asked to identify routes they currently use to get to and from downtown Boise and will be able to comment on projects they think should be of highest priority, the conversion of targeted one-way streets to two-way streets, and whether mini-roundabouts should be used at certain downtown intersections over traffic signals or stop signs.

What: Public Open House for Downtown Boise Implementation Plan
When: Wednesday, February 13th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Where: US Bank Building, 101 S. Capitol Blvd., 2nd Floor (across from the Egyptian Theatre)

For those unable to attend the open house but interested in reviewing the information and providing input, open house materials and an online survey will be posted to the ACHD web site,, on February 14. Comments will be accepted through February 27.

Additional public involvement is planned for this spring.
