The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) is beginning the design of the Cassia Street Bikeway. The goal of the project is to prepare a concept design for a bikeway that will be comfortable for people of a wide range of ages and abilities to bike on.
*Please note that the proposed bikeways include streets beyond Cassia Street. Please check the proposed route maps to see which streets may be included in each bikeway.
What is a bikeway?
A bikeway is a route, way, or path that is specifically designed and/or designated for bicycle travel. A bikeway does not preclude vehicular travel, but enhances the roadway character and experience for cyclists.
Why Cassia Street?
Cassia Street was identified as a potential bikeway in the 2012 Boise Central Bench Neighborhood Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. It's also included in the 2018 Roadways to Bikeways Bicycle Master Plan Update.
