Livable Streets Performance Measures

General Description:

ACHD is assessing a "level of stress" for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the county and has been working together with its land use partners to better link land-use and transportation planning for the future.

The proposed Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) for bicyclists and pedestrians, when combined with the current Level of Service (LOS) measures used for motor vehicle traffic, will provide a comprehensive look at how the existing and planned transportation system meets the needs of all people.

The goal is to better serve all users and establish a measurable system of comfort and usability for bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the county. This measurement identifies numerous factors such as traffic speed, bike lane type, sidewalk type, signals, and other considerations outlined within the  Draft   Livable Streets Performance Measures document.

Comments on the draft document will be accepted through June 14, 2021. All comments will be reviewed by ACHD prior to the ACHD Commission Meeting adoption hearing scheduled for June 23, 2021 at 6 p.m.


Important dates:

  • June 14, 2021 - Comment period ends
  • June 23, 2021 - ACHD Commission Meeting, Adoption hearing 6 p.m.

The Transportation & Land Use Integration Plan (2009)

On May 27, 2009 the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) adopted the Complete Streets Policy, Livable Streets Design Guide, and Cost Share Policy. It is known as The Transportation & Land Use Integration Plan. The goal is a roadway network balancing the need of all users-motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, transit and people with disabilities.
