BOISE -- A community weighed in Thursday night on the possible road expansion in North Eagle.

One of the controversial plans presented by the Ada County Highway District includes expanding Beacon Light from a two-lane road, to five.

This is a projected change they see happening in years to come, but residents we talked to are worried the focus should be put on more highly traveled roads.

That's been our concern all along, that you don't end up with expansions of highways in residential areas and have a negative impact on the quality of life of people who live there, said Steve Purvis who lives near Beacon Light.

ACHD says North Eagle will not always be the rural community you see today, and they need to plan for expansion.
