Not too long ago, Meridian and Kuna were two Ada County communities that were miles away from each other. But in just the last couple years, the two are getting to feel like very close neighbors, and this is having a big impact on traffic south of the Interstate. This is a problem that the Ada County Highway District is well aware of.
"It emphasizes the impact and the importance of working collaboratively to solve any traffic issues that arise," said Rebecca Arnold, the ACHD commissioner.
For now, no specific plans have been made on how the two governing agencies will continue to work together on southern Ada County growth issues.
