The Idaho Transportation Board will start its annual tour
of Idaho by holding its monthly meeting in Lewiston next week.
The meeting will be in the District 2 office, 2600 Frontage
Road on Thursday and Friday (April 15-16). The board will
alternate its monthly meetings between Boise and district
offices until next fall.
At the boards recommendation, district tours will have
a stronger emphasis on all modes of transportation. The tour
on Thursday will begin at the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport.
After discussing plans for the airport with its manager and
charter service with a fixed base operator, the board will
learn about public transportation in the area from the director
of Lewiston-based Valley Transit.
Several stops are planned as the board travels east on U.S.
12, including at the passing lane project site where a University
of Idaho archeology professor will provide an overview on
archeological issues at that location.
Other items on the agenda include a tour of the Lewis and
Clark Center in Weippe, lunch at the Weippe maintenance shed,
and an overview on the Dent Bridge project, a cable suspended
repair project. Upon returning to Lewiston, the board will
stop at the Port of Lewiston for a briefing on container shipping
and projects under way at the port before concluding its tour.
