Next Thursday night (Nov. 17), crews will close lanes on the Perrine Bridge to replace overhead lighting. To help lessen impacts to commuters, work will take place after 9:00 p.m.

Work is part of a larger project that is addressing important structures and sections of the highway system throughout the region.

“These new luminaires have an improved design that will extend their life expectancy,” ITD Project Manager John Keifer stated. “We are upgrading multiple lights this year and will continue to address other areas in South-central Idaho with future projects.”

While crews are on site, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in either direction.

“We anticipate crews will be able to complete all of the work in one night,” Keifer said.

Motorists are advised to drive engaged and watch for crews and equipment in the area.
