FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Aging Fruitland interchange overpass spanning I-84 to be repaired starting later in March

PAYETTE COUNTY - The half-century-old U.S. 95 interchange overpass spanning I-84 at Exit 3 near Fruitland will be resurfaced and repaired in a project starting March 19 and finishing about three months later, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

"The bridge deck and foundation for this bridge are considered to be in fair condition, with the superstructure in good condition," said Matt Farrar, ITD bridge engineer.

The concrete deck will be overlayed and pier caps and columns patched in this project to extend the life of the bridge, built in 1960. The bridge railing will also be replaced.

Asphalt paving work will be performed to tie the bridge approaches into the road on each end of the bridge. Click here for a picture of the bridge and project location.


Cannon Builders Inc., of Blackfoot, is the contractor for this $763,000 project.
