The City of Nampa and the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC) are making plans to improve safety and mobility along Franklin Boulevard between I-84 and East Plaza Loop in Nampa.
Growth has produced traffic that exceeds the roadway capacity and delays freight and commercial deliveries. A technical study completed in 2017 determined traffic operations along Franklin Boulevard could be improved by:
Relocating approaches close to eastbound I-84 ramps
Increasing turning radius for large trucks
Increasing distance between intersections
Process & Schedule Early 2021
Develop a range of improvement options
Conduct an environmental scan and traffic analysis of the project area
Contact residents and businesses to discuss the project
Select a subset of improvements for further evaluation
Meet with project area residents and business to gather input on the range of improvements
Recommend one improvement to move forward to preliminary design
City of Nampa and LHTAC are committed to working with the Nampa community during the project. They welcome public input and are available to answer project questions. Property owners, businesses and residents will have an opportunity to participate in this project.
