STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This proposed legislation is a trailer bill to SB 1138 to include
a Pilot Project route that was intended to be included in the
original bill. This route connects the existing northern
end of current access for 129,000 pound equipment on Yellowstone
Avenue in Idaho Falls to Highway 20 at Sugar City. This route is
important to the economic movement of aggregates and building
material in the area.
There is no fiscal impact to the general fund.
