Daytime lane closures are expected to start early Saturday morning on the Perrine Bridge while staff inspect the structure.
The routine inspection may take up to six days to complete, with crews on site each day between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. Only one lane will be closed in one direction at a time. Work will not affect the sidewalks.
“We are starting this work early and on the weekend when there’s less traffic,” Bridge Asset Management Engineer Alan Buehrig said. “We will be using a special truck to inspect areas underneath the bridge and will move back and forth between both sides, so motorists should be prepared for one less lane in either direction, depending where we’re working.”
Drivers should plan for delays by checking 511.idaho.gov as there is already active construction on the bridge. While the inspection will take less than a week, ongoing maintenance is planned through spring 2024.
