Ada County Highway District holding open house on State Street-Collister project

Ada County Highway District is preparing to rework the intersection of State Street and Collister Road in 2017.

On Thursday, the district is asking the public to attend an open house and give feedback on ways to make the intersection better for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and public transportation.

In a recent survey, respondents said signal timing was the biggest problem with the busy corner, followed by congestion, access issues and safety issues, according to a district report.

Thursday’s open house is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the highway district headquarters auditorium, 3775 Adams St., Garden City.
