‘First and foremost a safety issue’

Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, had this reaction to the Idaho Transportation Board's vote this morning to expand its list of projects for economic stimulus funding:  "I am thankful that the ITD board reconsidered, and I am very appreciative of the governor's support. Dover Bridge first and foremost is a safety issue, so I'm glad that this has happened."

Meanwhile, the Bonner Bee reported this week that the Dover Bridge is getting even more national attention; it'll be featured on a History Channel program tentatively titled "Crumble" about the nation's deteriorating infrastructure. "Lives are at stake all the time," Dover Mayor Randy Curless told the filmmakers during a recent filming session at the bridge, the Bee reported.
