      Idaho road project contract on hold after feds question contract
      award

      BOISE -- The contract to manage the largest Idaho road construction
      program in state history has stalled on concern it was awarded based
      on unfair political considerations.

      Federal officials have asked the state transportation board to
      reconsider its decision to give the contract to oversee the $1.2
      billion "Connecting Idaho" project to Washington Group
      International, from Boise, and Denver-based CH2M Hill Incorporated.

      Federal Highway Division Administrator Stephen Moreno has asked
      Idaho to reconsider and consult him before a final decision is made.

      In October, Washington Group and CH2M Hill won out over New York-
      based rival Parsons Brinkerhoff.

      Parsons Brinkerhoff then complained, arguing that nine people on an
      Idaho Transportation Department team that scrutinized both bids had
      said its plan was better.
