City Awarded $692,000 for Agate Road Project

ITD awarded the City of Victor $692,000 for the Agate Road Connectivity Project to transform an unimproved section of Agate between Aspen and Larkspur into a complete street.

VICTOR, Idaho — The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) awarded the City of Victor $692,000 for the Agate Road Connectivity Project, and the grant will go towards transforming an unimproved dirt section of Agate Avenue between Larkspur Avenue and Aspen Road into a complete street.

The Agate Road Connectivity Project includes constructing approximately 1,250 linear feet of roadway with ribbon curbing, a five-foot-wide concrete sidewalk and a 10-foot-wide concrete paved pathway, ITD said via press release.

“By transforming the last remaining unimproved segment of Agate Avenue into a paved, complete street, the City will alleviate the conflict point at Highway 33 and Larkspur Avenue, and create a viable alternative route to Highway 33 for the residents and businesses in the Larkspur Business Park area,” Mayor Will Frohlich said via press release.

The proposed project will also increase pedestrian and cyclist safety by providing an alternative route between the City’s downtown and the Larkspur Business Park, per the press release.

This project is anticipated to start construction by summer 2024.

Out of the 127 grant applications from local governments, 48, including the City of Victor were approved to receive funding through ITD’s Strategic Initiatives Program. A total of $100 million will be awarded to projects throughout the state, to improve urban and rural roadways.
