FARMWAY ROAD CORRIDOR

Farmway Road Corridor Planning Study

Canyon Highway District No. 4 and the City of Caldwell have partnered on this planning study of Farmway Road from its intersection with SH-55 (Karcher Rd) to the SH-19 (Simplot Boulevard) intersection.

The study will:

  • Determine a vision of the Farmway Road corridor to improve safety, mobility and access between SH-55 and SH-19.
  • Evaluate traffic operations for existing and future traffic at the following intersections:
    • SH-19/Farmway Road
    • Logan Street/Farmway Road
    • Linden Street/Farmway Road
    • Ustick Road/Farmway Road
    • Homedale Road/Farmway Road
  • Identify future pedestrian and bike facilities along the corridor. The initial facilities for discussion are detached pathways on Farmway Road from SH-55 to SH-19 as recommended in the City’s 2040 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
  • Develop a roadway plan that accommodates existing and future freight. Freight companies and manufacturers near SH-19 will be contacted to identify typical vehicle sizes and types and potential over-size and over-weight vehicles that utilize Farmway Road.
  • Evaluate intersection traffic control alternatives and determine if Farmway Road is best suited as a traffic signal corridor, roundabout corridor, or combination traffic signal and roundabout corridor.
  • Develop access management guidelines to improve safety and mobility while balancing access to existing and future development.
