By Paul Johnson

Burley, Idaho (KMVT-TV) – For the second time, the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 will be closed for two nights as crews work to replace two damaged girders on the 850 West Road bridge west of Burley, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
The detour will begin Monday Oct. 1 at 10 p.m. through Tuesday Oct. 2 at 6 a.m., then again Tuesday night through Wednesday morning Oct. 3.
The closure is required as crews remove a portion of the overpass roadway above the westbound lanes of I-84 at about milepost 205. The section of I-84 between Burley and Kasota Road will be closed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. for two nights Monday through Wednesday.
All westbound traffic will be detoured onto Idaho 27 at the Burley interchange (Exit 208), north to Paul and west on Idaho 25 to the Kasota Road interchange (Exit 201).
Work to replace the girders and roadway will continue through mid-November. Drivers will continue to see intermittent single-lane closures near the structure during regular work hours, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Cannon Builders, of Blackfoot, is the contractor for the $142,000 repair project. The damage occurred when an illegal over-height load struck three girders. The repair is to be paid for by private insurance.
