Construction for the Buffered Bike Lane Pilot Project now complete; ACHD asks for feedback

Boise -

The Buffered Bike Lane Pilot Project has officially begun in downtown Boise. Ada County Highway District (ACHD) crews worked through the evening on Thursday to complete the last car-lane to bike-lane changes on Idaho Street. As motorists and bicyclists alike try the new traffic pattern, ACHD encourages users to share their opinions. Public feedback will help determine the outcome of this project.

ACHD has designed a survey online that gives citizens the opportunity to voice their comments and concerns. Simply log onto our website at www.achdidaho.org and select the link "Downtown Boise bike lanes" under Quick Links. You will be lead to the project page and the survey. The ACHD Commissioners will review the comments before a final decision is made.

For now, the pilot project is slated to run till the end of May. The date may be extended if pending construction allows and ACHD finds that more time is required to get a better idea of how the implementations are impacting motorists and cyclists.
