Proposed Stimulus Package Projects

The big topic lately has been president-elect Barack Obama’s proposed economic stimulus package.

The package is a $800+ billion package aimed at funding the construction of infrastructure such as roads, highways, transit and bike and pedestrian projects, in an effort to stimulate the economy.

KMPO worked with local transportation agencies on a list of projects to submit for possible stimulus funding. Here's a link to more info on the Stimulus Package and the list of proposed projects for Kootenai County.

Any questions? Jeff is the authority on this. As much of an authority as you can be when you have limited information, anyway.
