Local Innovative Financing, Transportation Funding and Fiscal Diversification for a Regional Transportation Agency in Boise, Idaho

This paper examines the methods by which a regional transportation agency, the Ada County Highway District (ACHD), has diversified its funding programs and created new initiatives to address the growing funding gap for transportation infrastructure that has proliferated at national, state and local levels. ACHD is a unique agency in that it has jurisdiction over the local public highway system within six cities and the county in Ada County, Idaho, and manages aspects of the state highway system within its jurisdiction. The multi-jurisdictional role of ACHD has fostered numerous financing strategies and partnerships among state and local government entities, as well as the private sector, to address local transportation needs in an innovative and productive manner. A series of policy statements developed by ACHD in the mid-1990s serve as the impetus for these programs, which locally projects the philosophy and intent of innovative financing programs established through Federal transportation bills.
