The new bridge deck will include the same number of lanes on US-12 but provide wider shoulders and sidewalks as well as a painted median. As a result of a feasibility study in 2018, ITD will replace the deck using the existing piers.
ITD is completing an environmental analysis to guide the design of the improved bridge.
Final design plans are expected to be completed in 2021, and construction is expected to begin as early as 2023.fact sheet
Community input is extremely important to ITD’s design process. During the summer of 2020, ITD collected community input in Lewiston. More than 330 community members participated. ITD would like to thank everyone for their input. ITD has reviewed all input and will incorporate it into final design and construction plans.
