By Brittany Cooper

Minidoka County, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Motorists driving through Rupert this week can expect to see some road construction.

Idaho 24 will closed for up to five days starting Monday, as crews replace and repave two crossings near Minidoka.

Crews will replace the ties, rails and planks at the crossings, while ITD repairs and paves the highway approaches. Traffic will be detoured west of Minidoka onto 800 East Road and 900 North Road.

The speed limit will be set for 35 miles per hour. The project is expected to be complete and reopen on Friday.
