Unlike a conventional bike lane, protected bike lanes physically separate cyclists from cars.

The Ada County Highway District was recently awarded a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The grant will assist with 12 projects that are geared towards improving safety and access to transportation in Boise and Garden City.

Tom Ferch, Transportation Funding Coordinator and Tom Laws, Program Manager with ACHD joined Idaho Matters to talk more about the future of these projects.

Hi, my name is Hannah and I’m the assistant producer for the Idaho Matters show here at BSPR. If you have a suggestion for an Idaho Matters segment, please email idahomatters@boisestate.edu.
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
