On September 3rd, Idaho Policy Institute’s Interim Director, Vanessa Fry, presented at Idaho Associated General Contractors‘ 2020 Summer Meeting. Following a welcome by Idaho Governor Brad Little and Idaho Transportation Department Director Brian Ness, Dr. Fry discussed the results of a year-long project examining Idaho’s transportation infrastructure. Results indicate an additional $241.8 million in annual revenue is required to maintain and restore current transportation infrastructure (road, bridge, bike, pedestrian, and public transportation) in the state. Additional revenue is necessary to meet the state’s expansion needs.
