ITD to renew permits for Dover Bridge -- just in case

The renewal process apparently confused a number of people, according to the Spokesman Review's Eye on Boise Blog:

This was as puzzling as could be. Just a week after the Idaho Transportation Board received a report on the Dover Bridge on Highway 2 in North Idaho, declared the 71-year-old bridge safe but still sorely in need of replacement, and bemoaned the fact that there’s no money to do it – the project isn’t in the ITD’s five-year plan at this point – I received a press release from the state DEQ calling for public comments on permits for wetlands filling “to construct a replacement bridge on U.S. Highway 2 near Dover.” Comments are due by July 25. Read the whole story here.
