Boise - The Ada County Highway District will host a community open house tomorrow evening to talk about concepts that are being considered for Capitol Boulevard between the Boise River and Rose Hill/Federal Way. The concepts were developed from public input received last spring, and include:

-     Protected bike lanes on both sides of the street*

-     Shared-use paths (space for walkers and riders) on both sides of the street

-     A two-way protected bike lane on the west side of the street*

(*Requires removal of southbound travel lane on Capitol Boulevard, south of the river.)

The open house will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the Sage International School located at 601 S. 9th Street in downtown Boise. People who are unable to attend are encouraged to view the open house materials online at Written comments can be sent to 3775 Adams Street, Garden City, ID 83714, or via email at

The Ada County Highway District is collaborating with the City of Boise and Boise State University in an effort to make Capitol Boulevard between the Boise River and Rose Hill/Federal Way a more convenient place for people to walk and bike.
