Lawmakers To Study Funding For Roads And Bridges

Lawmakers To Study Funding For Roads And Bridges

South Dakota lawmakers are looking for new ways to pay for transportation projects.

Sen. Mike Vehle says federal money to help maintain roads and bridges is running out and the state needs to plan for future funding. The Mitchell Republican is heading up a group that will study the issue.

Committee members will likely consider gas tax increases, industry contributions and converting some roads back to gravel to keep manage transportation expenses.

Recent stimulus money from the federal government helped the state update roads. With the federal transportation fund expected to go into the red this year, Vehle wants the state to get a handle on funding options.

A recent report found 21 percent of the state's bridges to be structurally deficient.
