Board Asks For GARVEE Funds To Cover 95 Project

The Idaho Transportation Board is looking to borrow $162 million for projects to make it easier to drive between Boise and Canyon County and around north Idaho.

The Board asks for Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) program annually from the Legislature. This year, their request covers enough for several projects, including the project to widen 12 miles of U.S. 95 from Chilco to Granite. Not everyone supports the request though. The Coeur d'Alene Press has the story.
