    The Ada County Highway District announced it will add a bicyclist and pedestrian program coordinator to its team to better meet the needs of residents who walk or ride bicycles as their mode of transportation.

    The coordinator will play a large role in existing and future projects and will advise the highway district on best practices for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as influence policies that will serve the best interests of the public.

    The district said the position will be instrumental as it continues to serve Ada County and its increasing population.

    More information on the position will be released soon, according to the district, and the position should be filled by mid-May.
