Quote of the Day

"It really boils down to safety and connectivity, and the closing of Jefferson presents significant problems to both of these. For those who don’t know, Jefferson at Broadway is a preferred and heavily used bike route for accessing the East End Neighborhood from Downtown Boise and vice versa. When I used to live in this area, I used this intersection as my primary route in and out of Downtown, whether driving or riding a bike.

The closing of the street would be similar to the Downtown Library (another nonprofit) deciding it needed to shut down 8th St., another heavily used bike route, in order to expand and offer the best service to its customers. Perhaps the comparison is a little extreme, but those living in the East End of Boise may not think so."
