About Us

Golden Gate Highway District #3 (GGHD) is located in Wilder, Idaho which is in the Southwest section of Canyon County.  We are one of four highway districts in Canyon County.  GGHD manages approximately 225 miles of rural roadways, 135 bridges, and associated signs and culverts.  

The District is governed by a board of three Commissioners, each serving its own sub district.  The District has 10 employees.


Mission Statement

The improvement of highways and highway systems is a declared, established, and permanent policy of the state of Idaho, and the duty is imposed upon its system of state highways and upon other public highway jurisdictions in the state of Idaho including county, city, and highway districts in respect to their systems of highways to improve and maintain the highways within their respective jurisdiction within the limits of the funds available.  Therefore, it is the mission of this Highway District to maintain and improve its highway system in order to provide a well planned, safe, efficient, and well maintained system of highways for the residents, property owners, and other highway users and travelers within its boundaries.  The Commissioners, officers, appointed administrative staff, and employees of this District are all dedicated to providing the highway system, equipment, and trained personnel in the pursuit of this mission in the most efficient manner possible.



GGHD works hard to provide safe and manageable roadways for the traveling public.  We are a members of Idaho Association of Highways (IAHD) and the Association of Canyon County Highway District (ACCHD).

The highway district is a special-purpose district and therefore is not part of the county, state, or city governments.  The district is governed by state law in the Idaho Statutes, Chapter 13, Title 40.
