The Road Wizard appears in The Idaho Statesman, the Kuna Melba News each week to explore local transportation matters. He tries to find out why situations occur and what is being done about them. The Wizard's column is a public service provided by ACHD.
Request for a pedestrian crossing on River Valley Street to the Boise Co-op at the Village at Meridian; surprised reaction to the continued closure of the second left-turn lane on northbound Ten Mile Road at Franklin Road.
Afternoon traffic delays through the signal cluster of Cole Road at Interstate 84 explained; reader still happy about the new "dog bone" roundabout at Hill Road and 36th Street.
Northbound left-turn on Ten Mile Road to Franklin Road still works better with only one of two turn lanes open -- for now; new-style pedestrian button replaced at Cherry Lane and Ten Mile Road; road patching will have to be redone by utility contractor on Amity Road between Locust Grove Road and Meridian Road.
