The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) has been working with the community to develop a bikeway design for Shoshone St., Canal St. to Crescent Rim, since last year. Based on public input we have developed a bikeway design that we are excited to share with you.
The bikeway design includes a combination of bike lanes, signalized pedestrian crossings, sharrows, and more! The current design eliminates on-street parking on the east side of Shoshone St. between Overland Rd. and Rose Hill St. for bike lane striping.
Check it out below and let us know what you think before August 14.
Thank you for your interest in the Shoshone Street Bikeway Project. The survey closed on August 14, 2019.

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) is beginning the design of the Shoshone 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 Shoshone 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 Shoshone Street?
Shoshone 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.
