Bridges at seven locations throughout north-central Idaho will be repaired, with the first of the seven beginning Monday, Oct. 5.
The projects will be suspended late this fall when weather is no longer conducive to work. Unfinished work will be completed next spring.
The bridges will require a variety of repairs designed to resurface the bridge decks and seal the decks against water and weather to extend the lifespan of those structures:
- Concrete Overlay at Arrow Gulch Bridge at milepost (MP) 0.09 of Idaho 3.
- Concrete Overlay at Lapwai Creek Bridge at MP 301.03 of U.S. 95
- Concrete Overlay at Lapwai Creek Bridge at MP 302.46 of U.S. 95.
- Epoxy Overlay on Lawyers Canyon Creek Bridge at MP 267.44 on U.S. 95
- Epoxy Overlay on Arrow Bridge at MP 14.96 on U.S. 12
- Epoxy Overlay on Little Potlatch Creek Bridge at MP 4.89 on Idaho 3
- Deck Crack Sealer on U.S. 95/U.S. 12 Interchange Bridge at MP 304.49 on U.S. 95.
Work also includes updating guardrail and performing other maintenance on the bridges.
Repair of Little Potlatch Creek Bridge, at milepost 4.89 on Idaho 3, and Arrow Bridge, at milepost 14.96 on U.S. 12, will begin Oct. 5 and last until approximately Oct. 8. Work on the U.S. 95/U.S. 12 interchange bridge, at milepost 304.49 on U.S. 95, is planned for Oct. 9 and 10. The Lawyers Canyon Creek Bridge, at milepost 267.44, will be repaired from about Oct. 12 through Oct. 16.
From Oct. 19 through Nov. 18, concrete overlays are planned for Arrow Gulch Bridge, at milepost 0.09 on Idaho 3, and Lapwai Creek Bridge, on U.S. 95 at milepost 301.03 and milepost 302.46.

Drivers should expect minor delays of up to 15 minutes during construction. Flaggers and temporary traffic signals will be used to direct traffic. ITD appreciates the patience of motorists during this period.
Braun-Jensen, Inc., of Payette, is the contractor for this $993,000 project.
