7 Draft STIP shows potential investment of $411 M for next year bonding request. Board has not acted on this, and may change. The draft includes funding for completion of the current six corridors and adds three projects for development and construction (Thorn Creek to Moscow, Twin Falls Alternate Route, and Timmerman to Ketchum).

8 A Vision Connecting Idaho began more than a year and a half ago as Governor Dirk Kempthornes vision for improving Idahos transportation infrastructure, connecting all 44 counties, addressing safety for Idaho motorists, and expanding opportunities for commerce nationally and internationally. Connecting Idaho began more than a year and a half ago as Governor Dirk Kempthornes vision for improving Idahos transportation infrastructure, connecting all 44 counties, addressing safety for Idaho motorists, and expanding opportunities for commerce nationally and internationally.

9 That vision resulted in the passage of SB-1183 legislation in The bill authorized the Idaho Transportation Board to request bonding authority from the legislature to finance $1.2 billion– the largest public works project ever undertaken in this state - in regionally significant projects stretching from the northern-most part of Idaho almost to the Wyoming border. These bonds, which pledge the future federal revenue stream and are commonly known as Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle or GARVEE bonds, are being used in at least a dozen other states to advance construction.

12 Project Update The Projects The six Corridors approved for work under the GARVEE bond proceeds are: The six Corridors approved for work under the GARVEE bond proceeds are:

13 A.)US-95, Garwood to Sagle. This project will create a multi-lane divided highway between Coeur dAlene and Sandpoint with at least partial access control. It will provide a 52-mile multi-lane, high performance highway from I-90 in Coeur dAlene to Colburn. $35 million was approved to start this project, which will provide for engineering and initial right-of- way acquisition.

14 Status - The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) has been submitted to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for legal sufficiency review. The legal sufficiency review comments are back to the Division Office (week of August 21, 2006) and due to be forwarded to ITD by end of August. Once the review comments are incorporated, the DEIS will be available for public review and comment. A Public Hearing is anticipated for fall of The preliminary engineering and preparation of right-of-way plans will begin in July 2006, so that as soon Record of Decision on the EIS is issued (anticipated to be in April 2007) the right-of-way acquisition will begin.

15 B.)US-95, Worley North. This project will extend the recently completed Bellgrove to Mica project south of Coeur dAlene. It is planned to be a four-lane divided highway with partial access control. This project will complete a 21-mile four-lane route from Worley to Coeur dAlene. The estimated construction cost of Stage 1 of this project is $45.6 million.

16 Status - The design of Stage 1 is nearly complete. The right-of-way required is being appraised and acquisition should be completed later this year. There is a cultural resource that recently surfaced and so plans are being modified to avoid the resource. Construction will most likely begin in April Status - The design of Stage 1 is nearly complete. The right-of-way required is being appraised and acquisition should be completed later this year. There is a cultural resource that recently surfaced and so plans are being modified to avoid the resource. Construction will most likely begin in April 2007.

17 C.)SH-16, I-84 to South Emmett. This project will provide planning and initial right-of-way acquisition to connect I-84 between Nampa and Meridian with SH-16 and proceed to the bottom of Freeze Out Hill. The highway is planned to be a controlled access, four-lane divided highway. $5 million was allocated to begin work on the potential alignment from I- 84 to SH-44 near Star and begin right-of-way acquisition.

18 Status – The scope of work for developing the corridor study from SH-44 to I-84 is being developed. We have been planning a couple of open houses to inform the public on the status of the corridor. The residents between SH-44 and I-84 are anxious to find out where the alignment might go, and how it will impact their property. The public along and users of the existing SH- 16 between SH-44 and Emmett are anxious to find out when improvements to that section of the corridor might happen. There have been several willing sellers contact ITD about parcels of land in the area around the SH-44 and SH-16 interchange that would like to sell their parcels to ITD. We are exploring options for accelerating the acquisitions where possible. Status – The scope of work for developing the corridor study from SH-44 to I-84 is being developed.

19 D.)I-84, Meridian to Caldwell. This section of I-84 has seen a significant increase in traffic volumes over the past several years, and has become very congested. Increased capacity is the focus of the initial phase of this project. $70 million was approved to begin widening the interstate from Meridian to the west. It will also fund preliminary engineering and environmental process and right-of-way acquisition for the new Ten Mile Interchange.

20 Status - Planning has begun for adding a third lane to the interstate between the Meridian Interchange and Garrity Interchange. The aerial mapping of that segment has been completed and the geotechnical investigation to determine whether the existing pavement can be rotomilled and overlayed or completely reconstructed is well underway.

The preliminary design and environmental evaluation of the Ten Mile Interchange has also begun for selecting the type of interchange that will be constructed at Ten Mile Road. A public meeting will be held August 31, 2006 and notices have gone out to the public.

21 E.)I-84, Orchard to Isaacs Canyon. This project will ultimately reconstruct and modernize the existing interstate and interchanges through the City of Boise. The existing concrete pavement was constructed in the 1960s and has reached the end of its useful life. The upgrades would begin about ½ mile west of the Orchard Street Interchange and ends near the Isaacs Canyon (also known as Eisenman Road). The total project design and construction cost is presently estimated at $285 million. $13.9 million was approved to begin the engineering for the reconstruction and widening and possible right-of-way acquisition.

22 Status – The preliminary engineering and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the corridor is proceeding. The draft EA is being reviewed by FHWA at this time. A Public Hearing on the EA is scheduled for November Status – The preliminary engineering and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the corridor is proceeding. The draft EA is being reviewed by FHWA at this time. A Public Hearing on the EA is scheduled for November 2006.

23 F.)US-30, McCammon to Lava Hot Springs. This project will complete a four-lane roadway from I-15 at McCammon to Lava Hot Springs. The initial funding approved for this corridor was $30.5 million. That will fund the construction of the first phase of the corridor called Topaz to Lava Hot Springs and allow final engineering design to begin on other segments between McCammon and Topaz.

24 Status - This is the first construction project to be realized by selling the bonds. It will rebuild and widen a 4.5 mile section of US 30 west of Lava Hot Springs. It was advertised for bid on May 12, 2006, with bids opened on June 13, 2006 and Western Construction of Boise, was the winning contractor. The Engineers Estimate was $21.3 million, and the bids came in at $18.34 million. Western Construction began construction on August 14th. A Groundbreaking Ceremony was held August 18th with nearly 200 people attending to celebrate the start of this major project.
