BONNERS FERRY — Boundary County commissioners have applied for funds from the Leading Idaho Local Bridge Program to repair several structures in the county.
The program funds the repair or replacement for bridges 20 feet in length or more on the local road network. Bridges must be in poor condition or be posted for load weight limits, according to LILB officials. This program is part of a transportation bill (Senate Bill 1359) allocating hundreds of millions of dollars to upgrade and repair Idaho’s bridges and infrastructure.
$200 million will be going toward local bridges, which is estimated to clear out one-third of Idaho’s bridge maintenance backlog.
Boundary County commissioners have applied for Skin Creek, Parker Creek, Yukon and Deep Creek bridges to be repaired. An estimate on the cost of the projects is not yet available.
