The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) has been updating its transition plan to ensure that all pedestrian facilities within the agency right-of-way are safe and accessible for all users. As part of this effort, ACHD has evaluated over 2,600 miles of sidewalk and 26,600 curb ramps and developed a plan to guide ACHD efforts to address inaccessible facilities. 

 

The Plan* will be presented to the ACHD Commissioners for possible adoption on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. The meeting will begin at 12 p.m. ACHD staff will make a brief presentation followed by an opportunity for public comment before the Commission acts.

COMPASS Education Series

What Is a "Complete" Street and What Does It Mean To Me?


Monday, April 15, 2019
5:30pm | Meet & Greet
6:00pm - 8:00pm | Free Public Presentation


Presenters: Peter Eun and Brooke StruveFederal Highway Administration

COMPASS 1st Floor Board Room
700 NE 2nd Street, Meridian 


Often the different transportation modes – bikes, cars, freight trucks, buses, and more – are in competition for the same space, which has a significant influence on how we move within our transportation system and can lead to conflicts. This presentation provides an overview of how we can design our transportation system to be “complete” by supporting all types of transportation in a way that is safe, efficient, convenient, and comfortable.

SAFETY IS KEY!

We want to remind you that safety is a team effort. The contractor is making all possible accommodations to provide a safe work zone for all users but we appreciate your help in the process. When in the work zone remember these important tips:

  • Stay alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Make eye contact with construction workers and flaggers
  • Follow posted signage 

Thank you for your patience and partnership as we maintain a safe work zone!
