ACHD Budget and Project Process: How Things Get Built


2019 Budget Public Meeting

  • July 26 | 5:30-7 p.m.
  • ACHD 3775 Adams Street | Garden City
  • Presentation starts at 5:30 pm.

Come see the draft 2019 budget, a $121 million spending plan that includes projects to increase safety and mobility, which also provides for the maintenance and operation of Ada County's roads, sidewalks, traffic signals, bike lanes and related infrastructure. The proposed, $59.1 million capital budget has 160 projects, including:

  • Improving Cloverdale Road between Franklin Road and Camas Drive in coordination with the Idaho Transportation Department as they replace the Cloverdale overpass.
  • Widening Cole Rd, I-84 to Franklin Road, as well as the Cole Road and Franklin Road intersection
  • Revamping Linder Road, between Ustick Road and McMillan Road
  • Adding pedestrian facilities on the Boise Bench -  Kootenai Street, Vista Avenue to Federal Way; Columbus Street, Overland Road to Kootenai Street; and Overland Road, Columbus Street to Federal Way

Please join us for this early peek at the document, which will be published in early August for public comment and considered by the ACHD Commission for adoption on August 22, 2018.

The initial draft and Information about the FY 2019-2023 Integrated Five-Year Work Plan (IFYWP) is available. We welcome your thoughts and comments!

If you cannot attend the meeting you are welcome to testify at the Commission hearing in August or to send comments in advance.


Ever wonder how roads get improved, how signals replace STOP signs or how new sidewalks are added to older streets?

By its nature, the planning, preparing and building of multi-million dollar projects takes a few years -- but the resulting asphalt, bridges and sidewalks last for decades. Each year, new items are added to our infrastructure do-list. Citizens will have many opportunities to get involved and make requests in coming months before the ACHD Commission considers the spending plan for adoption in late August.

ACHD starts the budget process early to allow citizens a chance to impact the process, if not for the coming year then for a year or two down the road, so to speak. The first open house for the Fiscal 2019 Budget was held on February 15, 2018. Another public workshop will occur in July. 

The public is welcome to testify at the Commission hearing in August or to send comments in advance.
