ACHD to host open house April 18 on Meridian Road widening project

The Ada County Highway District will host an open house on its preliminary design for widening Meridian Road from Cherry Lane to Ustick Road.

The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, April 18, at Meridian City Hall, 33 E. Broadway Ave.

The project proposes to widen Meridian Road to two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane. Bike lanes and continuous curb, gutter and sidewalk would also be added.

ACHD is holding the open house to get public input on the project; it will host another open house later this summer. ACHD will use the public input to help finalize the design.

Construction is slated to begin in late 2019.
