    6th Street Would Be A Good Conversion As Would 5th

    5th & 6th Should Be Kept The Way They Are Between State & Front And Should Be Converted For State-Fort & Myrtle-Front

    I am very concerned about this conversion. It will greatly increase traffic on 13th street. The location of both North Junior High and Boise High means that 13th street is being heavily used by students crossing to get to school. The increased traffic in an area with so many kids is dangerous. Franklin Street is also a designated bike route and this conversion will make crossing 13th street hazardous and will discourage them. We should be encouraging these bike and pedestrian commuters with safe routes. It will be very costly and due to the increased traffic use on 13th it will be backed up heading south at State Street. This conversion should be delayed until traffic flow can be observed after the other streets are converted.

    ACHD projects that switching 13th to a two-way system will increase traffic on the street by 25-30%, in addition to backing up traffic on 13th north of state street, right into the Boise High School zone and indirectly into the North Junior High zone. This traffic increase and back-up would adversely affect one of the best pedestrian and bicycle friendly east/west corridors in the north-end: Franklin Street. I oppose converting 13th street, but If two-way traffic is indeed allowed on 13th south of State Street, I think strong consideration would have to be made for adding traffic lights or roundabouts for the heavy-pedestrian intersections (especially Franklin St.) just north of the impacted area due to the projected traffic increases.

    I like the counter flow on 8th between Bannock & Main - proposed change looks OK; consider converting 8th & 9th to two-way from Union St south

    I would just be concerned with the narrowness of 5th street - converting to 2 way may be difficult. I work at 611 Grove (Basque Block) - don't know that it would reall affect us, but the Basque Center may be affected. They have some parking in front of their facility. This is designated as a segment w/ complex issues - so I'd imagine you'd look very closely and try to get input directly from businesses, etc. along these corridors - 5th & 6th

    Great idea to make 13th two-way all through town. Better flow esp. @ State St

    Only issue with current setup is that it's difficult to remember which streets are one-way and which direction they move. i.e.: even go North, odd travel South. I'd like to see 3rd and 4th remain one-way

    11th would be a great connector between the northend & the connector. Plus being two-way it would also be a great two-way bike route from the northend to the greenbelt and Pioneer pathway

    Need left-turn lane on Bannock and 9th so cars can turn south onto 9th from Bannock

    Angled parking on Front and Myrtle between 6th and 13th; complete elimination on E/W one-ways except connector. That is, convert Idaho and Main to 2-way streets. Force commuter traffic off DT roads and on connector.

    5th/6th are fire departments run routes that should be left one-way

    One-way road prefered over 2-way for cyclists.

    I live at 6th/Hays - 6th rarely has much traffic - should be easy to convert to 2-way

    Third would provide great connectivity for someone on a bike that wants to avoid going too deep into downtown. I often ride on the sidewalk in the one-way section.

    Two-way conversion great! But 8th really would be better off as a car free zone between Main & Bannock. Early loading traffic only.

    Make all north/south numbered streets 2-way w/ bike lanes. Get bicycles off the sidewalks & make pedestrian crossings sequenced to stop traffic in both directions

    Concerned about how left turn traffic would flow if Jefferson becomes two-way
