Open house June 11 for Clearwater Memorial Bridge in Lewiston

US-12 crosses the Clearwater River.

The public is invited to an open house on Tuesday, June 11 to learn about plans to widen and repair the Clearwater Memorial Bridge.

The open house will be at the Red Lion Hotel (621 21st Street) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Community members will have an opportunity to learn about the project, which is scheduled to start construction in 2023.

“The existing structure was built in 1951, and some of its components are nearing the end of their service life,” ITD project manager Curtis Arnzen said. “ITD is making major plans to improve the bridge to ensure that it will serve the region for many years into the future.”

Plans include widening the shoulders and sidewalks over the structure, as well as creating a wider median to divide lanes.
