The Ada County Highway District is working to increase safety and add more roads and sidewalks for bicyclists and walkers in Garden City.
In May, ACHD sent out a survey to get more input from residents and to identify areas in need of improvement.
Using an interactive map, participants identified the location and made suggestions for improvement.
“It would be great if you can add a bike path between the river and private property so that the detour around is eliminated. Maybe a planked type of path that can stand up to flooding,” said one comment.
The survey was open to anyone in the public.
“Anser School families cross Chinden here. Longer cross times and no permissible left turns here during before and after school hours,” said another participant who referenced the safety around an area charter school.
Based on the survey, ACHD identified Sidewalk and bicycle projects under consideration.
ACHD said input is always welcome but noted comments will be most effective if given before August 6th.
