Planning and Collaboration

Ongoing Studies

Capitol Boulevard Concept
Sponsors: ACHD
Status: August 2015

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD), in cooperation with the City of Boise and Boise State University, is working on a plan to make Capitol Boulevard between the Boise River and the Rose Hill/Federal Way area easier and more convenient to use for people walking, biking, and driving.   

The growth of the Lusk Street area, and inadequate pedestrian and bicycle facilities on Capitol Boulevard has created a need for increased connectivity to better serve the Bench, Boise State University, and Downtown Boise. 

Communities in Motion 2040 2.0
Sponsors: COMPASS
Status: Expected completion early 2019

Communities in Motion 2040 2.0 (CIM 2040 2.0) will be a minor update to the current long-range transportation plan, Communities in Motion 2040 (CIM 2040), adopted in 2014.  CIM 2040  is being implemented and simultaneously updated.  CIM 2040 2.0 is expected to be adopted by the COMPASS Board in early 2019. CIM 2040 2.0 will refine the original CIM 2040 plan. To that end, it will retain the same horizon year (2040) and will build on the main tenets of CIM 2040 -- namely the CIM 2040 Vision, goals, performance measures,  and targets. The focus will be on additional information and analyses to support implementation.
