ID-55 and the Snake River Bridge
Nighttime Closures
On Tuesday, Sept. 3; Thursday, Sept. 5; Friday Sept. 13, and Monday Sept. 16 the contractor plans to place twelve (12) 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.
What to expect:

  • 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.

  • Work will generally be done between 10:00 pm and 2:00 am.

  • Each night up to three (3) girders will be placed.

  • The work will be noisy.

  • Additional girders will be placed the first part of October.
