Franklin Street Sidewalk Project Web Banner

Construction to start as early as mid-March

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) will start construction on the Franklin Street Sidewalk Project as early as mid-March 2021. Work is expected to be complete summer 2021. The project includes constructing sidewalks and pedestrian ramps on the north side of Franklin Street between Avenue I and Haines Street, as well as stormwater improvements at Haines and Franklin.

What You Can Expect During Construction

  • Lane restrictions.
  • Temporary on-street parking impacts.
  • General construction noise, dust, equipment backup alarms, and ground vibrations.
  • Crews working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., unless otherwise approved.
  • The contractor will work with homeowners to maintain access.



  • Construct sidewalk and pedestrian ramps on the north side of Franklin Street between Avenue I and Haines Street
  • Most improvements will be constructed within the public right-of-way.
  • Check out the design!


  • Provide a safe walking route for Roosevelt Elementary School students.


  • Winter 2019 - Began working on concept
  • Summer 2019 - Seek public input on the conceptual design (We are here!)
  • Late summer 2019 - Finalize design
  • 2021 - Anticipated construction year



Why add sidewalks to the north side and not the south?

  • The north side provides the connectivity that is desired for children walking to and from Roosevelt Elementary School.
  • The north side also has fewer impacts to trees, fences and other landscaping. When evaluating the project, we discovered that adding sidewalks to the south side of Franklin would require significantly more impacts to existing property.

Why does the sidewalk meander a bit?

  • While impacts are unavoidable, ACHD tried to adjust the layout of the sidewalk to reduce significant impacts to trees and other landscaping.
