The Ada County Highway District is designing a roundabout for the Ten Mile and Amity intersection. The purpose of the project is to increase safety for current and future users - motorists, pedestrians & bicyclists - as well as accommodate future traffic volumes. Please review the following information and let us know what you think.
The Ten Mile and Amity roundabout project is an outcome of recommendations from the Ada County Roundabout Study: Amity Road Intersections.

In June 2007, ACHD held a public open house to share the roundabout study information and conceptual plans for a roundabout at Ten Mile and Amity. ACHD Commissioners adopted the recommendations from the Ada County Roundabout Study: Amity Road Intersections in January 2008. Since then, a preliminary roundabout design has been created and was presented for public input at an open house in March 2009. To view open house displays, which include the preliminary design or to comment on the project, see "Related Documents" located on the upper right side of this page.
