BOISE, Idaho — With the new year underway, new projects will be starting soon, and the Ada County Highway District is looking for your input.

Since 2018, ACHD has been working with the community to develop a bikeway design for Cassia Street from Kootenai Street to Franklin Road. New designs include bike lanes, signalized pedestrian/bicycle crossings, a new pedestrian bridge at Cassia Park, a raised intersection, and more. In addition to the bikeway, sidewalks are being designed for Cassia between Shoshone and Latah, and Cassia between Troxel and Franklin Park where they currently do not exist.

ACHD is hosting a community open house this month. There will not be a formal presentation, but designs will still be on display. The meeting is Thursday, January 9 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Boise.

Materials and a survey from the open house will be available here starting January 10. Written comments may be sent to the ACHD office in Garden City or emailed to by January 23.
