The Idaho Transportation Department is seeking public comment on a raft of projects, which will be rolled into the agency’s five-year planning “roadmap.”
Titled the Idaho Transportation Investment Program, the plan covers everything from highways and bridges, to bicycle and pedestrian facilities, railroad crossings, public transit, even airports. Once completed, the ITIP will guide construction through 2018, including projects paid for under the GARVEE (grant anticipation revenue vehicle) Transportation Program. It also lists federally funded local projects.
Details included in the draft range from highway route and location plans to schedules for right of way acquisition, preliminary engineering, construction and estimated costs.
According to ITD, “public comments will help the transportation department determine if proposed projects meet the department’s three main objectives of improving safety, mobility and economic opportunity.”
Feedback from the public will be gathered from Monday, July 1-Tuesday, July 30.
