Bingham Co. Changes Roads and Bridges Plan
(BLACKFOOT) – Spring flooding put a big dent in Bingham County’s budget, and now officials are changing the way roads and bridges are managed. The county is extending its five year to-do list to eight years. Next year’s $2.5 million budget includes chip-sealing, paving, rebuilding levees, and shoring up roads to ensure that they’re not washed away in future floods. Authorities say their top priority is to keep residents safe.
