The Idlewild Road Widening Project was one of several projects that received funding to begin planning only. A Planning Report was completed in October 2004. This report provided information on existing conditions; traffic analysis; project alternatives; recommended alternatives; and citizen involvement among others. The report was revisited with anticipated funding on the way and City Staff presented additional alternatives to the public based on changes to the area. After careful consideration and input from citizens, Alternate #2 was selected. Funding for real estate acquisition and construction was approved by voters in the 2010 transportation bond referendum.
