Drivers can expect overnight lane restrictions near Twin Falls next week as crews perform specialized inspections of the Perrine Bridge. On Monday, Aug. 24 and Tuesday, Aug. 25, single lane closures will occur on the bridge to allow inspections on the bridge deck.
Work is scheduled during evening and nighttime hours to help reduce traffic congestion through the area. Drivers may consider using an alternate route between the hours of 8 pm to 5 a.m.
On Wednesday (August 26) a short duration (15 minute) single lane closure will occur in the left northbound lane at approximately 9:30 a.m. as crews access the lower half of the structure. Another short duration closure will occur in the afternoon once inspections are complete.
“The Perrine Bridge is a unique structure that plays a vital role in the region,” stated ITD South-central Idaho Operations Manager Seth Helms. “Routine and specialized inspections are performed regularly to assess the bridge and ensure the longevity of the structure.”
Motorists are urged to exercise caution near the work zone and watch for crew members and equipment. ITD appreciates the patience and cooperation of those driving through the area.
