About the project

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) and the City of Garden City are partnering to create a fresh Corridor Plan for Idaho Highway 44 from the junction of State Street and Chinden Blvd., also known as Glenwood Street.

This section of highway is a critical connection in the heart of the Treasure Valley metro area. It is one of the few crossings over the Boise River, and connects the two primary east-west commuter routes north of Interstate 84. The highway is a major business corridor with dozens of services and shops along it, and the primary route to the Ada County Fairgrounds. Glenwood also connects neighborhoods north and south to the Boise River Greenbelt, a premier recreational and non-motorized commuter facility.

The corridor plan will:

  • Identify primary stakeholders and uses along the corridor
  • Identify goals and vision for the corridor
  • Prescribe short-term improvements to existing facilities
  • Outline long-range modifications in the event of redevelopment
