Sunday traffic reduced to one lane on the Perrine Bridge
SHOSHONE---Drivers can expect lane restrictions and possible delays near Twin Falls next week as crews from the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) place platforms underneath the Perrine Bridge for upcoming special inspections.
On Sunday, August 18 it's anticipated that crews will utilize ITD's under bridge inspection truck along the bridge deck. Southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane while the truck is in use.
Work is scheduled to occur on Sunday to help lessen traffic congestion through the area. Motorists may consider using an alternate route between the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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.
ITD and the Idaho State Police advise motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and dial 5-1-1 or visit 511.idaho.gov for information on the state highway or interstate system.
