The City of Boise is proposing an extension of the 8th Street bike lanes from Bannock St. to Washington St. Project elements include:
- Protected or buffered southbound bike lane for all three blocks.
- Expanded sidewalk space on the west side with enhanced landscaping on both sides of 8th Street from Bannock to Jefferson.
- Parallel parking converted to back-in angled parking on the east side of 8th Street from Bannock to State.
These changes are intended to enhance the bike network and improve safety and comfort for bicyclists and pedestrians, while minimizing impacts to driving and parking.
