Peasley Street Connection Improvement Project

Peasley Connection Concept

The Peasley Street connection to Ann Morrison Park is an improvement project submitted by the Harry W. Morrison Foundation to the City of Boise. The stairway will enhance bicycle and pedestrian access to Ann Morrison Park from the Boise Bench, improving access for more than 1,774 households. The improvement project aligns with the City of Boise’s goal of ensuring everyone has access to a park within a 10-minute walk of their home. 

Project Approval 

The Open Space and Clean Water Advisory Committee recommended the project to Boise City Council in February of this year. At the April 11 work session meeting, council approved levy funding for the project in the amount of $850,000. The improvement project satisfies conservation criteria of critical open space, trails and pathways, and community partnerships.   

Design Details 

The 94-step staircase will be made of flat steel grate and will include a runnel (a grooved bicycle tire track) so that users can easily walk their bike up and down.  

Additional accessibility elements will include visual indicators and textured surface. 

Next Steps 

The contract for this project was awarded to Bulldog Excavation. Permits have been finalized and construction has begun. The project could take up to a year to complete.

Project completion estimates are subject to change due to volatility in the construction industry. Current challenges include material availability, rising costs, supply chain disruptions, staffing shortages and more. Boise Parks and Recreation will update project timelines as needed if delays occur.
