Keep at least 80 percent of all
bridges in the State Highway System
in good condition.
Why This Is Important
Ensuring that Idaho's bridges are in good condition protects transportation investments and lowers repair costs while maintaining connectivity and commerce. Commerce depends on the carrying capacity and reliability of roads and bridges.
How We Measure It
The measurement is the ratio of deck area (or plan dimension) of bridges in good condition to the deck area of the entire inventory of state bridges stated as a percentage.
What We're Doing About It
ITD strategically schedules preservation and restoration projects to improve deteriorating bridges across the state. Over time, increased investments will be needed to achieve this goal.
