The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) is evaluating the conversion of 5th and 6th Streets, between Fort and Myrtle streets, from one-way to two-way operation.

An open house for public feedback is scheduled for April 13 at 11:30 am to 1:00 pm or 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm at the Basque Center, 601 Grove Street. 

Nicole DuBois. ACHD public information specialist, said ACHD is considering a few options for the streets including leaving them as they are, doing a partial conversion or completing a full conversion to two-way operation. 

Converting the roads could cut down on downtown parking spaces.

"We'd have to look at removing about 54 parking spaces, on-street parking spaces, to add turn lanes," Dubois said. 

Those unable to attend the open house can submit theirfeedback and opinions online.
