ITD asks for input on changes to busy Glenwood Street in Garden City

As Garden City continues to grow, The Idaho Department of Transportation and the city are working to make improvements to Idaho Highway 44, also known as Glenwood Street.

The Glenwood corridor connects State Street to Chinden Boulevard. It’s also home to dozens of businesses and large neighborhoods.

A new survey will help ITD create a plan to improve transportation on the corridor. ITD’s goal is to identify primary users and stakeholders and plan for short and long-term improvements.

Survey questions include how often, why and type of transportation used on the corridor.

ITD also has an interactive map on its website where you can click on a specific location along the corridor and leave a comment.

“As a cyclist, I would feel much safer when riding along Glenwood if there was a bike lane or sidewalk that connects W Riverside Dr. to the Greenbelt on the west side of Glenwood,” one comment said.

The survey takes about five minutes. It’s open to the public until October 31st.
