Chinden Boulevard

The history of Chinden Boulevard in Garden City and improvements to US 20/26 have received significant community and media interest during this period of unprecedented growth in southwest Idaho’s Treasure Valley (comprised of Ada and Canyon Counties). As an enclave surrounded by the City of Boise on the north, east, and south sides, Garden City’s comparative lack of infrastructure on this primary corridor through the city is stark as travelers leave the tree-lined and bicycle-friendly City of Boise.



1999 Chinden Corridor Plan

ACHD developed Plan. Key plan concepts included recommendations for non-traversable medians and right-in- right-out approaches on Chinden.
