The Idaho Transportation Department won a pair of American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials President’s Awards, and the agency was recognized for earning two of the top three spots for projects in public voting this fall across the country.
▪ The first AASHTO award was for finding a solution to foster federally mandated safety inspections on a bridge over the Dworshak Reservoir in north-central Idaho and to balance that with federally protected osprey nests.
▪ The second recognized the GARVEE program, a major investment in the state’s roads and bridges during the last decade. GARVEE is an acronym for Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle bonds, which are backed by future federal highway aid.
The 59 GARVEE projects were delivered on time and under budget, and they greatly increased traffic capacity and dramatically improved safety, ITD says. GARVEE added about 120 miles to the state highway system for congestion relief, added or replaced 41 bridges, and built or improved 14 of the state’s busiest interchanges.
▪ In the People’s Choice awards, Idaho’s GARVEE program and Pocatello’s South Valley Connector finished among the top three in public voting nationwide.
The People’s Choice awards are a joint effort of AASHTO, the AAA motor club and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
