Bike Lanes Cometh

by

You’ve got one more chance to have your say about how the Ada County Highway District addresses bike needs in the future.

ACHD Commissioners will consider a master plan for a county wide bike network that would potentially provide a designated bike route or bike lane within one-quarter mile of roughly 95 percent of county residents.

The final draft of the Roadways to Bikeways plan will be up for adoption at the commission meeting on Wednesday, May 27 beginning at 6 p.m. at the ACHD administration headquarters at 3775 Adams St. in Garden City. The public will have one final chance to offer comments before the final vote.

The Roadways to Bikeways plan started in 2007, and creates a broad policy to guide road building efforts in the county over the next 50 years. The final plan includes connecting gaps in the current bike system and incorporating bike-friendly options in new projects. The plan also takes into consideration the more than 2,100 responses from a public survey conducted over the past several years.
