It may not look like much, but it’s progress! In December, groundwork started on the future dog park at the Ada/Eagle Sports Complex. The future dog park is a public-private partnership between the City of Eagle and homegrown Eagle company PetIQ. The dog park will be 2.77 acres with a grass surface when complete.
Construction on the dog park will include small and large dog enclosures, a gated dog leashing/unleashing area, a dog waste disposal station, and a short extension of the existing parking lot.
Eagle residents have been asking for a dog park for many years. The City of Eagle would like to thank PetIQ for partnering with the city and making this dream into a reality. The project is still in its very early stages, but we hope to open the gates for doggy playtime in April of 2021
The Ada County Highway District (ACHD), working with the City of Eagle, is currently designing improvements to Eagle Road and State Street and the connecting roadway network which includes Olde Park Place, Plaza Drive, and Aikens Street. The quadrant design was the outcome of the Eagle Road and State Street Concept Design, an effort that began in 2012.
ACHD is seeking your feedback on the design. Learn more about the project, view the design, and provide comments by visiting the project on ACHD's webpage.
In late September the City held an open house about the Ped-Bike bridge project. Click here to view the displays from the open house.
In early August crews cleared debris and trimmed trees along the west side of the Eagle Road Bridge over the north channel of the Boise River. The debris clearing was in preparation to dig test bores for the planned pedestrian and bicycle bridge. Bridge construction is tentatively scheduled for 2024, dependent on future funding.
On September 10, 2019, the Eagle City Council accepted the pre-concept report for a grade-separated crossing of SH-44 East of Eagle Road. The pre-concept report reviewed the optimum location for a crossing and provide an overview of crossing options including bridges over and a tunnel under. The study is the first step in project development.
The City Council has directed staff to begin a public participation process to gage community preference for the crossing options and the public willingness to fund the project. Once completed the City will pursue funding for the project through both public and private sources. Check out the pre-concept study.
