State Street Corridor

State Street Corridor

State Street/Highway 44 extends from downtown Boise to Interstate 84 west of the City of Middleton in Canyon County and is the only east/west roadway north of the Boise River that links these communities in Canyon and Ada Counties.

Local agencies have been planning for improvements along the State Street corridor since 2002. Several transportation options have been analyzed and a market study has been completed. During this time, transit service and ridership have increased and new sidewalks and pathways have been constructed. Bus rapid transit along State Street is identified in Communities in Motion 2040 2.0 as the #1 unfunded regional public transportation priority.

An advisory committee of approximately 70 individuals helped shape the State Street Transit and Traffic Operations Plan, completed in 2011. They helped identify strategies to improve transit performance and traffic operations along the State Street corridor and identified locations for future transit-oriented development. Members' contributions were used to help establish local and regional goals for a long-term transportation plan that will form the basis for future projects on this corridor.

Several additional studies, plans, and reports have been completed to date. Select studies are linked below. A complete list can be found at www.buildabetterstatestreet.org/documents.
