8th Street Bike Lane Improvements

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.

Why the Project is Needed

  • There are no bike lanes east of 15th Street, making it difficult to cross State Street safely.
  • 8th Street is the primary north/south bicycle corridor through downtown and there are no bike lanes currently on these three blocks of 8th Street.
  • The current road configuration exhibits unused vehicle capacity which could be better used to support other mobility choices without impairing the current and future flow of traffic.
  • Existing street trees conflict with awnings in some locations and the current streetscape does not meet city of Boise standards.
