Perrine Bridge inspection to take place next week near Twin Falls

Dependent on weather, drivers can expect lane restrictions and possible delays near Twin Falls next week as crews from the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) perform routine bi-annual inspections on the Perrine Bridge.

From Monday, September 14 through Friday, September 18 crews will walk the arch and deploy ITD’s under-bridge inspection truck along the bridge deck.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in either direction while crew members are utilizing the inspection truck. Work will occur at non-peak hours to help lessen traffic congestion through the area and is expected to following the below schedule:

Northbound Right Lane Closure: Monday Tuesday, 8:15 am to 3 pm
Southbound Right Lane Closure: Wednesday Thursday, 9 am to 3 pm

Short duration (15 minute) single lane closures will also occur each day in the left northbound lane when workers access and exit the lower half of the structure.

Motorists may consider using an alternate route between the hours listed above.

Drivers are urged to exercise caution near the work zone and watch for crew members and equipment. ITD appreciates the patience and cooperation of those driving through the area.
