ITD to close ID-13 near Harpster Thursday night for crane removal

Idaho Highway 13 near Harpster will be closed Thursday night (Aug. 2) to allow contractors to remove a truck-mounted crane from a ditch.

The crane went off the roadway at milepost 14.2 more than a week ago. It is estimated to weigh 37 tons and will take two cranes positioned on the roadway to haul out of the ditch.

The closure will start at 7 p.m. Thursday night and is anticipated to last until 9 a.m. Friday morning. A detour will be posted.
