Idaho Transportation Department’s $857 million Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle program allowed officials to invest in highway projects throughout the state for the past decade. All 59 projects aimed at increasing safety and mobility were delivered on time and under budget. The program also added 119 miles to state highways for congestion relief, built 20 bridges, replaced or widened 26 others and reconstructed or improved nine interchanges. Aggressive and competitive bidding allowed big savings and projects to be constructed simultaneously or sooner than anticipated, which reduced construction costs and impacts to the public. These ITD efforts allowed travelers access to their roads much sooner to immediately enhance the region’s commerce and commercial transportation.
