    A School Bus Stop is located here. A sidewalk for student use would be great

    No sidewalk is present on the South side of Lake Hazel. Crossing Lake Hazel is dangerous due to high traffic volume.

    Goatheads are a major problem for walkers and cyclists along the sidewalk

    Maple Grove needs a sidewalk from Lake Hazel road to the next subdivision on the West side of the street.

    Potential Bike route for Silver Sage district students to LHMS. No rout currently exists with sidewalks or bike lanes.

    Canal right of ways offer excellent opportunities for walking and cycling and create safer off-street routes for students to and from school these could be improved and made official paths.

    A footbridge across the canal would allow better access for students trying to reach Lake Hazel Middle School

    Need continuous bike lanes on both sides of Cole Rd. The section from W. Middle Fork to W. Sorenson Dr. has no bike lane and no shoulder. It is also dark and has obstructed visibility from hills. The 2 crosswalks in this section also need street lights. Visibility is poor on dark mornings and cars often don't see pedestrians waiting to cross. This restricts access to local businesses like Idaho Pizza Company, Dutch Brothers, and Mad Sweed Brewing.

    Lake Hazel was widened to 3 lanes from 5 Mile to Maple Grove, except in front of a brand new apartment complex which will add much traffic entering and exiting on Lake Hazel. There should be a turn lane here to help traffic flow. It doesn't make sense why one wasn't created, or why the developers weren't required to create one.

    Continuous sidewalks all the way to LHMS so kids can easily bike without being on the main roads for safety. Lake Hazel is too busy and dangerous to have kids be biking on the shoulder.

    Sidewalks on both sides of the road from Maple Grove south of Lake Hazel north to the LDS church. Including short sidewalk from the main sidewalk to the crosswalks in the intersections at Maple Grove and Lake Hazel. This is a hug problem for kids biking on the sidewalk trying not to get goatheads in their tires.

    Elementary school kids do have a designated path now, but it is still very dangerous. Making the street wider and lowering the speed limit would make it safer for our kids.

    The only interstate crossing that is safe is at Orchard. Five Mile has lighter traffic and if a bike lane were added to this overpass, it would be a great connection from the Emerald bike lanes

    Please consider there is a dearth of options to cross the freeway on a bicycle due to lack of wide enough shoulders or cycling lanes the entire section. This makes commuting on a bicycle very dangerous and nearly makes all of the cycling lanes on both sides of the freeway useless without a good option to cross the freeway. Due to the traffic on Cole, having the only bicycle lane that crosses the freeway on Cole road, this puts commuting cyclists at risk.

    This very narrow shoulder should be widened and a bike lane included for an alternate cycling commute route when coming south from Franklin.

    The shoulder of Victory road along this path should include a bicycle lane on both sides, to extend the lanes provided east of Cole to Orchard along Victory.

    A cycling lane should be added, or at least a wide shoulder, along Amity road. This could serve as a nice cycling route for commuters.

    The disappearance of the 'turning lane' on Lake Hazel right at the point where there is a new entrance being built to a large apartment complex is quite perplexing. The turning lane recently built along Lake Hazel should extend fully from this point to Maple Grove. And sidewalks should be required along this entire route from Maple Grove to the Ada County library.

    The shoulder along Lake Hazel road is extremely narrow and nearly fully prevents cyclists from utilizing what could be an important thoroughfare for commuting cyclists.

    The entire section of Cole road from Lake Hazel to Overland has inconsistent bicycle lanes. Specifically, the extreme narrowing of the shoulder and lack of a bicycle lane from Boise Fire Station 17 to Victory road is a significant hazard for cyclists during commute hours when heavy car traffic is present. In addition, the lack of a wide shoulder or bicycle lane near the intersections of Lake Hazel/Cole and Lake Hazel/Amity are puzzling and cause much friction between cars and cyclists along this route.
