Comment needed on State Highway 44 Glenwood Corridor Plan

Posted: 10/12/2020


The Idaho Transportation Department and the City of Garden City are partnering to create a fresh Corridor Plan for Idaho Highway 44 from the junction of State Street and Chinden Blvd., also known as Glenwood Street.

This section of highway is a critical connection in the heart of the Treasure Valley metro area. It is one of the few crossings over the Boise River, connecting the two primary east-west commuter routes north of Interstate 84. The highway is a major business corridor, with dozens of services and shops adjacent. It is the primary route to the Ada County Fairgrounds. It also connects neighborhoods north and south to the Boise River Greenbelt, a premiere recreational and non-motorized commuter facility.

The corridor plan will:

  • Identify primary stakeholders and uses along the corridor
  • Identify goals and vision for the corridor
  • Prescribe short-term improvements to existing facilities
  • Outline long-range modifications in the event of redevelopment

Here is a link to the survey. The deadline for taking the survey is Saturday, October 31, 2020.
