Public Meeting Scheduled in Heyburn to discuss Snake River bridge reconstruction


By Paul Johnson

Heyburn, Idaho – The public is invited to an open house Tuesday February 4 to discuss the replacement of the I-84 Snake River twin bridges near the Declo interchange, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
The open house will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Heyburn City Office, 941 18th Street in Heyburn.
ITD staff will be on hand to answer questions and gather comments about the scheduled bridge replacement projects. The primary goal of the roadwork, scheduled to begin in 2015, will be to replace both I-84 bridges across the Snake River, and reconstruct the westbound on-ramp and eastbound off-ramp at the Declo interchange (Exit 216).
The bridges, constructed in 1960 as part of the original interstate construction, are both considered structurally deficient and each carry nearly 7,000 vehicles per day.
Illustrations of the new bridge structures will be available to review. ITD staff will be on hand to discuss the project specifics, including roadway design, construction schedules and restrictions, and traffic control plans. ITD is collecting input from members of the public that may be taken into consideration prior to construction.
