Dover Bridge Gets Passed Over For Funding

Idaho’s Transportation Board - faced with a staff recommendation to make replacement of the deterioriated Dover Bridge its top priority for federal stimulus funds - instead dropped the project to No. 7 on its list in a special meeting yesterday.

And the news gets worse; only six projects are likely to get funded. Now, North Idaho Sen. Shawn Keough and Governor Butch Otter are not happy. Here's the story from the Spokesman-Review.
