ITD is rebuilding the Snake River Bridge & ID-55 between Marsing and the U.S. 95 Junction
El Departamento de Transportación de Idaho va a reconstruir el puente del río Snake en Marsing y Idaho 55 entre Marsing y el cruce de U.S. 95. La construcción empezará en enero del 2019 y está anticipado a terminarse para el verano del 2020.
The Snake River Bridge was built in 1955 and has reached the end of its design life. The new bridge will safely carry increased traffic and trucking volumes for many years. Improvements will include:
*11-foot width restrictions will be in place during construction on the bridge.*
Highway improvements will include:
Traffic on the Snake River Bridge in Marsing will switch to the north side of the bridge the week of Dec. 9 in preparation for the demolition of the south side of the bridge.
What to expect:
> Traffic signals will continue to direct traffic from both ends of the bridge.
> Marsing Island Park will be accessible at all times.
> A 14-foot width restriction will continue to be in place on the bridge.
Crews will begin demolition of the south section of the bridge after the traffic switch is complete.
On Tuesday, October 1 the contractor plans to place new girders on the Snake River Bridge. Girders are the large horizontal beams that support the surface of the bridge. Each girder weighs 141,000 pounds and is 148 feet long.

ID-55 and the Snake River Bridge will be closed for up to 30 minutes each time one of the girders are being placed.
Sunny Slope Rd. southbound will be reduced to one lane between Lowell and True roads. The lanes will be restricted from noon to 2:00 am each night to stage the bridge girders.
The work will be noisy.
