Bannock Streetscape Improvements
12th to 16th Street
Streetscape and intersection updates to improve pedestrian and bike connectivity from the West Downtown Neighborhood into downtown Boise.
Continuing its goal to enhance the pedestrian experience and expand mobility choices throughout downtown, CCDC will work on updating the streetscapes and improving connectivity and safety along Bannock Street, creating a more active and accessible urban environment for everyone to enjoy.
The overall project goal is to create a pedestrian-friendly corridor that seamlessly connects the West Downtown neighborhood with the heart of downtown Boise. By making strategic improvements on both sides of Bannock Street between 12th and 16th Streets, we are committed to enhancing the overall experience for pedestrians and cyclists alike.
About the Project
The improvements planned for Bannock Street include various elements designed to create consistent and cohesive streetscapes. These enhancements will include upgraded sidewalks, enhanced lighting, increased greenery, and improved intersection safety measures. By focusing on these areas, we aim to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for pedestrians, encouraging foot traffic and supporting local businesses.
One of the key aspects of this project is the coordination with ACHD’s Bannock Street Neighborhood Bikeway project. By aligning our efforts, we can ensure that the streetscape improvements and the neighborhood bikeway work together harmoniously, providing a safe and convenient environment for cyclists to travel through the area.
We understand the importance of pedestrian and bike connectivity, not only for the residents but for all who visit or work in the area. The future Bannock Streetscape Improvements will ensure that pedestrians and cyclists have a seamless and enjoyable journey as they navigate throughout downtown.
As the project progresses, you will find regular updates, including detailed information about the project, proposed designs, anticipated timelines, and how the improvements will enhance the overall streetscape.
