N. Idaho Highways Could become Heavy Haul Routes

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Four northern Idaho routes designated as appropriate for extra-long trucks will likely be considered as potential routes for extra-heavy trucks as well. The Spokesman-Review reports that U.S. highways 95 and 2, and State highways 41 and 53 already have the extra-long designation.

The Idaho Transportation Department is creating a committee to review the new law aiming to allow more large trucks on Idaho’s highways. The law requires ITD to set rules procedures before new routes can be designated for trucks that weigh between 105,500 and 129,000 pounds. Timber companies fought for allowing bigger shipments, saying it will help their businesses. Foes fear allowing larger trucks on highways will make roads more dangerous.
