I-15 Exit 93 Blackfoot bridge repairs start Monday

BLACKFOOT – Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) maintenance crews will make repairs to the Blackfoot bridge on I-15 at Exit 93 for your safety and mobility. Repairs will begin Monday, Oct. 7, with plans to be completed by Oct. 17.

Crews will be sandblasting and resurfacing the bridge deck, replacing guardrail and completing shoulder work. This repair project is intended to temporarily fix the bridge until ITD is able to begin the bridge deck rehab project planned for the summer of 2020.

Construction will be performed on northbound I-15 from Oct. 7-9. Traffic control will be removed and traffic will resume as usual after Oct. 9 until southbound construction begins. Traffic control will continue for southbound I-15 construction from Oct. 15-17.

Drivers can expect traffic delays for the duration of the project. Reduced speed limits will be in effect and traffic will be shifted over periodically to single-lane, two-way traffic. Click here to see the pdf explaining the traffic-control plans. 

Oversized loads will need to use appropriate alternative routes as there will be a 12-foot lane restriction through the construction zone.
