ITD-Controlled Aggregate Material Source Modernization Project

Materials sources are an essential part of the planning, construction, and operation of Idaho Transportation Department's (ITD’s) highway network. Planning efforts must incorporate the location of existing ITD roadway corridors, the current availability of aggregates and future considerations for aggregate/land availability and price. Toward maintaining a network of quality materials sources, a Materials Source Purchase Program (MSPP) is available to assist the districts with the cost of purchasing materials sources. This program is funded by a source cost recovery fee assessed on material removed from ITD owned or controlled sources. However, ITD has not thoroughly evaluated the existing MSPP since 2007. Although source recovery fees have remained stable, Idaho has seen rapid growth and skyrocketing demand for aggregates and property within the state. Consequently, prices for aggregates and land continue to rise steeply, while ITD’s source recovery fees and associated accounting have not been reviewed in nearly two decades. ITD is therefor at risk of not being able to further pursue and develop ITD-controlled aggregate sources, resulting in less competition in construction projects bidding. This project will independently evaluate the viability of the MSPP, identify deficiencies in aggregate sources and recovery fees, and establish a plan to effectively administer the MSPP in the future.
