I-way is a growing statewide network that connects people in Idaho to an exciting mix of transportation options, giving Idaho an economic and quality-of-life advantage, while helping keep our state clean and beautiful.
Up for Review & Public Comment:
The draft coordinated mobility plans for the seventeen (17) Local Mobility Management Networks (LMMN) are now ready for review and public comment. These draft LMMN mobility plans are revised from the 2009 and 2010 plans based on input from many interested stakeholders through an open planning process that included many public meetings. The focus of the plans is on the needs and strategies identified by each LMMN and will help guide the public transportation funding recommendations made by the six (6) District Coordination Councils. 

Kootenai County is District #1 (which includes Benewah, Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai and Shoshone) and the mobility manager for this area is Cliff Warren.
