Phase I Goals:
- Analyze the 21-mile Kuna-Mora Road Corridor from the Canyon County line to Interstate 84.
- Determine the future traffic needs of the corridor.
- Identify the corridor’s intended function.
- Establish a planning document for right-of-way preservation and policy-setting purposes.
- Determine the appropriate interchange and intersection locations and typical cross-sections for the roadway.
Communities in Motion, the long-range transportation planning document established by the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS), determined that Kuna-Mora Road is vital to the region due to its potential as an alternate to I-84. The Plan recommended that Kuna-Mora Road from McDermott Road to I-84 be preserved as an expressway.
