ACHD: Roadway to Bikeways Plan Update

Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 6 pm

3775 Adams St., Garden City

 

ACHD is updating the 2009 Roadways to Bikeways Bike Master Plan with an addendum. The plan originally identified opportunities to enhance and expand the existing on-street bicycle network.

 

The addendum will be presented to the ACHD Commissioners for possible adoption on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m.; however, this project is one of several agenda items and may not be the first item discussed.

ACHD staff will make a brief presentation followed by an opportunity for public comment before the Commission acts.

 

Learn more about the plan at http://bit.ly/rtbplan.

 

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to submit comments, please send them to 3775 Adams St., Garden City, ID 83714 or to this email: projects@achdidaho.org.
