Ada County Highway District

Fairview Avenue, Locust Grove Road to Eagle Road

General Description:

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) is designing future improvements for Fairview Avenue between Locust Grove Road and Eagle Road to improve traffic flow and increase safety for all users.

ACHD reached out to the public in June 2020 to seek feedback on the design. Based on the public comments we received and further review, ACHD has revised the design and wants your feedback. 

Please review the updated information below to learn more about the project and tell us what you think. 

Thank you for your interest in the project. While your comments are always welcome, the comment period closed on July 26, 2021.

Project Description

  • Widen Fairview Avenue to three lanes in each direction, with a center turn lane
  • Expand the Fairview and Locust Grove intersection to include additional thru and turn lanes
  • Construct crosswalks at the Fairview and Locust Grove, and Fairview and Hickory intersections that serve both bicyclists and pedestrians
  • Add controlled access with a mix of raised curbs, medians, and channelized left turns for increased safety
  • Allow U-turns at signalized intersections (Hickory, Locust Grove, Eagle Road) and at median breaks
  • Add street lighting
  • Install buffered, raised bike lanes
  • Add curb, gutter and sidewalk where it currently doesn't exist; rebuild existing facilities if necessary
