Kuna-Mora Road Corridor Study – Phase 2, McDermott Road to East of Eagle Road
Sponsor: Ada County Highway District
Status: Fall 2008 - Cuurently on hold
Study will look specifically at the 8-mile segment of Kuna-Mora Road from the Canyon County line east to Eagle Road. Phase II will evaluate potential alignment options for this segment of the roadway. A preferred alignment will ultimately be established for the 8-mile segment. The Phase II study process will: 1) Seek public participation and input, 2) Utilize agency coordination (i.e. Between ACHD and City of Kuna, Ada County, Boise City, Nampa Highway Department, Canyon County, ITD, Idaho Department of Lands, City of Nampa, Idaho DEQ, etc.), 3) Work to minimize impacts to existing residences, cultural and topographic elements, 4) Use Phase I study recommendations in evaluating alignment options.
Through this study, the City hopes to identify any potential short- and long-term opportunities for locating a trail within the Treasure Valley corridor, without negatively impacting any current or potential future uses. The study consists of an opportunities and constraints overview, roadway crossing analysis, agency coordination summary, fatal flaws analysis, and recommended next steps.
