ACHD wants to bring bike lanes to road near you
10:23 AM MDT on Thursday, May 28, 2009
GARDEN CITY - The Ada County Highway District Commission unanimously approved the Roadways to Bikeways master plan Wednesday night.
The plan envisions a bicycle network that provides a designated bicycle facility within a quarter-mile of 95 percent of Ada County homes. Such a bicycle facility could take the form of a roadway signed as a bike route, a bike lane, or another type of improvement.
The $250,000 Roadways to Bikeways effort began in April 2007. The next steps include finalizing ACHD's program to schedule and build the recommended improvements.
