EOB: Dover Bridge Back On List

Item: Dover Bridge back on stimulus list/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise

More Info: The Idaho Transportation Board, meeting this morning in Boise, has voted 4-1 to put the Dover Bridge and the I-84 Vista Interchange back on its list of “shovel-ready” projects ready to receive federal economic stimulus funds. Two weeks ago, the board had crossed those two projects off the priority list, saying they wanted to spread the money around the state. “Things are changing on a daily basis regarding potential stimulus package,” ITD Director Pam Lowe told the board.

Question: Did the Transportation Board find more money? Or did it give in to common sense and pressure? After all, the Dover Bridge was listed as one of the 10 in most need of attention in the country.
