Reimagining the Space for Everyone: Ada County Highway District’s Lane Reconfiguration Success

In 2012, the City of Boise, ID, USA sponsored the 30th Street Area Master Plan to propose land use revitalization and infrastructure improvements to an area west of Downtown Boise. This article describes the plan and its vision to promote walkable, people-oriented, mixed-use neighborhoods through redevelopment; enhance mobility for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists; and enhance the local street network. The plan included a key recommendation for the Fairview Avenue and Main Street one-way couplet to reduce the number of vehicle lanes in each direction from four to three. This would allow flexibility to enhance alternate transportation modes and would revitalize this older part of town through reimagined transportation facilities and redevelopment opportunities.
