Ada County Highway District (ACHD)

 

Funding & and Spending Survey

ACHD needs your input on funding and spending priorities. Faced with growing needs for better signal timing, for more efficient intersections and roads, and for expanded pedestrian and cycling facilities, the Ada County Highway District is asking the public about spending priorities -- and the willingness to pay for more service and projects.

 The ACHD Commission wants input as it considers investments for the future. Alongside an ongoing telephone survey of Ada County citizens, an online survey is available at www.achdidaho.org for those who wish to weigh in.

 

Link to survey: http://www.achdidaho.org/Departments/PR/fundingsurvey.aspx

Input from the surveys will inform the Commission’s upcoming decisions on the annual budget as well as the longer range plans concerning big dollar improvements – road expansions, intersection upgrades, bridges, and neighborhood-level programs and projects. The online survey closes on May 25.

ACHD: State Street/VMP/36th Street Intersection

Phase 2 and What to Expect:

 

The temporary paving along the south side of State St. is nearly complete which means construction will be moving to phase 2. 

Here are some of the important changes that will occur when the second phase begins:

  • The construction will begin on the north side of State St., and the west side of Veterans Memorial Pkwy. and 36th St. 
  • Traffic will swap to the south side of State St. and at that time left hand turns directly from State St. at the intersection will be removed. This change is expected to occur by the morning of Friday, March 23rd, weather dependent. 

    • Work to implement the traffic swap will begin Thursday night around 9 p.m., this work will require lane restrictions and flagging (weather dependent)
  • Traffic on Veterans Memorial Pkwy and 36th will swap to the east side as early as March 29th 
  • Pedestrian movements to the north/south on the west side of State St. will be eliminated. 
  • Pedestrians should cross over to the east side before moving north/south
  • Temporary barriers will be placed along State St. between Thursday, March 22nd and Friday, March 23rd-- commuters should expect lane restrictions
  • Milling on the north side of State St. may begin as early as March, 27th 

 

Business Access Maintained!

Business access within the project limits will be maintained. There will be business access signage to let commuters know the access points. ACHD encourages you to continue to visit the businesses in this area.

 

Left Turns from State 

When construction moves into Phase 2 left turn movements  will be removed directly from State St. at the intersection. This is expected to occur as early as the morning of March 23rd.  Message boards were placed on March 12th at the following locations:

 

Westbound: just west of Lemp to remind commuters to turn at Whitewater

Westbound: near State and 27th to remind commuters to turn at 27th

Eastbound: west of Collister (near the Edgewater Apartments) to remind commuters to turn at Collister.  There will also be a message board for both EB and WB traffic at the intersection.
