Video: ACHD Hosts Open House on Mini Roundabout


The Ada County Highway District has been putting a lot of changes into motion when it comes to the streets of downtown Boise. With a pilot project installing buffered bicycle lanes and a plan to change some one-ways into two-ways, the agency is also going to be placing several mini roundabouts throughout the downtown coreā€”the first of which will be installed at the intersection of Third and Bannock streets.

ACHD hosted an open house at the Boise Public Library May 14 to gain feedback from the public on the plan; and, while implementation of the mini roundabout is already set in stone, feedback from the public could lead to design changes in the final layout. Construction is due to begin in September and estimated to be finished in December of 2014.
