Dependent on weather, drivers can expect lane restrictions and possible delays on the U.S. Highway 93 entrance to the City of Twin Falls while the Idaho Transportation Department performs routine inspections on the Perrine Bridge.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 14 through Friday, Sept. 18, ITD crews will walk the arch and deploy an under-bridge inspection truck along the bridge deck.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in both directions while crew members utilize the inspection truck. Work will occur at non-peak hours to help lessen traffic congestion through the area and is expected to follow the below schedule:
- Northbound Right Lane Closure: Monday – Tuesday, 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Southbound Right Lane Closure: Wednesday - Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Motorists may consider using an alternate route between the hours listed above. Short duration (15 minute) single-lane closures will also occur each day in the left northbound lane when workers access and exit the lower half of the structure.
Drivers 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.
The Idaho Transportation Department, or ITD, is responsible for operating, preserving, restoring and improving an integrated network of 12,315 lane miles of highways and roads, 1,830 bridges, 2,523 miles of Idaho Byways, and 31 state backcountry airstrips.
