Todays Presentation Revenue shown is for Idahos entire transportation system Totals are approximated
Revenue Needs The Task Force on Modernizing Transportation Funding recommended that Idaho should increase transportation funding by $543 million annually for all system needs, or by at least $262 million annually to operate, preserve, and restore the existing system. The system is suffering from: Aging infrastructure: Much of Idahos infrastructure was built in the 1950s and 1960s. Growing demand: Idaho has been one of the fastest growing states in the nation for over a decade. Flat revenue: Idahos fuel tax, currently 25¢ per gallon, has not been raised since 1996. Inflation: In inflation-adjusted value, the 25¢ fuel tax implemented in 1996 is worth only 17¢ today.
Real World Examples In 1996, Burley Highway District paved 10 miles of new road every year. In 2013, the Highway Districts paved just 1 mile of road.
