Nampa to Mull Biking, Walking Improvements


As the Boise City Council and the Ada County Highway District consider recommendations for improved bicycle infrastructure from a stakeholder group delivered Sept. 23 at a rare joint session of the city council and ACHD, Nampa is considering similar improvements of its own, the Idaho Press Tribune reports

Nampa residents are being encouraged to attend an open house to learn about planned improvements including bicycle boulevards—a bike-friendly street where cars are outnumbered—bike lanes, multi-use paths and enhanced lighting. The city received funding for the improvements through federal transportation grants, and construction is expected to begin in spring or summer of 2015.

The open house will take place from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, at Flying M Coffeegarage.
