Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Eagle Road and State Street intersection is the gateway to the City of Eagle and an important part of the downtown core. As a gateway, it serves vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages who want to access local businesses, neighborhoods, the elementary school, and the senior center.

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD), working with the City of Eagle, is currently designing improvements to Eagle Road and State Street and the connecting roadway network which includes Olde Park Place, Plaza Drive and Aikens Street.

Goals

The goal of the street network improvements is to improve safety and mobility for all users while accommodating future traffic growth and creating a welcoming downtown environment.
