Information that probes the depths of the transportation department – from the myriad accomplishments of past year to highway improvement projects for the next five years and beyond – have been added to the ITD Web site.
The 2004 Annual Report, which outlines achievements of the past yea, was posted to the “Publications” page on the web ( http://www.itd.idaho.gov/NewsAndInfo/Publications.htm ).
A link to the PDF (portable document format) is found next to an image of the Annual Report’s front cover under the “News and Information” section. Also listed under the same heading are the 2004 Public Transportation Performance Report and “Inside the Idaho Transportation Department.” The latter includes information about ITD programs and projects and a resource guide that includes important telephone numbers, addresses and links to transportation-related Web sites.

ITD’s guide for operating and growing the transportation system is included in the newest release of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, a 130-page PDF document also posted on the Publications site.
