Boise City Council approves $40,000 for wildlife bridge over Highway 21

 

A new bridge will be coming to Highway 21 in the Boise foothills, but it won’t be for cars.

On Tuesday, Boise City Council unanimously approved the use of $40,000 of Open Space and Clean Water Levy funds approved by voters in 2015 to help fund the construction of a wildlife bridge to help animals cross Highway 21 safely.

The Idaho Press reports, the project will cost an estimated $3.2 million, with the bulk of funding coming from a Federal Highway Administration grant.

The proposal requests $40,000 in levy funds to help with the local match requirement for the grant. It is set for funding in fiscal year 2021.

When I was in elementary school, probably first through fourth grade, I used to listen to the radio every morning while eating breakfast.  My mother would turn on the radio and tune it to 1310 AM, which was KLIX in Twin Falls.  KLIX, just like KBOI in Boise at the time, was a full-service radio…
