Franklin Boulevard Mobility Project

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

Spring 2021

  • 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

Community Involvement 

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.
