What to do about Fairview Avenue? Congestion, crashes, bike lane and sidewalk gaps and access issues have long frustrated drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and traffic engineers.
The Ada County Highway District Commission on Thursday will hold a joint meeting with elected officials from Boise, Meridian and Ada County to discuss possible traffic management solutions for the 8.5-mile stretch of Fairview between Orchard Street in Boise and Linder Road in Meridian.
The meeting starts at noon at ACHD, 3775 Adams St. in Garden City. No public comment will be heard at the joint meeting, but the public will have a chance to weigh in on Feb. 26 when ACHD holds a public hearing at 6 p.m. on its draft improvement plan, which includes adding raised medians, updating signal timing, installing bus pullouts, reducing the number of driveways and closing bike lane and sidewalk gaps.
