KETCHUM, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The City of Ketchum has now approved their master transportation plan, which means they have direct steps to follow to help improve traffic flow for cars, bikes, and pedestrians.

Now that the transportation plan has been approved by the city council, Ketchum will be able to help make travel easier and safer for residents and tourists.

The master transportation plan hasn’t been updated since 2004, so this will help when city officials apply for grants or other options for funding.

Some projects they will work on are updating sidewalks and upgrading pedestrian signals.

“Now we have a basic framework in place and that will guide each initiative as we go through this,” said Mayor Neil Bradshaw. “We will look at a lot of different parts of this plan and as funds become available, we will implement them.”

The document is able to be changed or updated over time, as more people move in to Ketchum, or other priorities pop up.
