The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) has been working on a traffic calming study along 13th Street from Fort Street to Hill Road since 2018. The purpose of this project is to create a more pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment with traffic calming measures.

Project Highlights 

  • Install radar speed limit signs.
  • Add bulb outs and pedestrian ramp upgrades at five intersections along 13th Street. Approximately one parking spot on each side of 13th Street will be removed to install each bulb out.
  • Install a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at the Resseguie Street and 13th Street bulb out to increase safety at the pedestrian crossing near North Junior High.
  • Replace sidewalk along Camel's Back Park. 
  • Restore on-street parallel parking on the east side of 13th Street in front of Camel's Back Park between the new bulb outs.
  • Analyze existing street lighting and upgrade or add lighting, as needed.

Construction is anticipated for summer 2021.
