Bonner County developed the 2018 Transportation Plan with the assistance of Welch Comer Engineers. The plan evaluates the current system and numerous needs and prioritizes maintenance and projects going forward so that funds can be budgeted to most effectively improve and maintain the Bonner County road system. Capital improvement projects, bridge maintenance needs, chip sealing schedules, safety improvements, etc are all included within the plan. This document will provide a summary of where the department is going in the next 5-10 years, with the intent that the plan will be updated every 5 years to stay relevant.
The 2018 Transportation Plan has already been instrumental in the award of a $100,000 grant for hard surfacing the remaining gravel miles of Lakeshore Dr and the Road & Bridge Department will continue to leverage the plan's benefits as we continue to pursue grant money into the future.
