The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) has been working on a traffic calming study along Kootenai Street from Orchard Street to Vista Avenue. If you have provided feedback during our last two open houses - thank you!

Based on public input received from the neighborhood in July, ACHD has developed a traffic calming concept for the neighborhood to consider. Please review the information below to learn more.

Key Information

  • We Heard You At earlier open houses we consistently heard that residents were worried about impacts to their property and the importance of the trees and landscaping to Kootenai's character.
  • What We Did We narrowed the vehicle lanes from 11-foot wide down to 10-foot wide. This allows traffic calming improvements to fit within the existing street footprint.*
  • Please Remember The traffic calming concept we are presenting is not a final design. If approved by the Commission, ACHD will design the project at a later date. The design will be presented for public comment.

*Any property impacts during construction (sprinkler heads, landscaping, etc.) will be restored.
