Time-lapse images of new Rock Creek crossing now available online
TWIN FALLS - A live look at the Twin Falls Alternate Route Rock Creek crossing is now available for those interested in the current status of construction, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
Cameras at the site capture the daily progress during the removal of the dirt fill and construction of the new Rock Creek Bridge. In addition to serving as a historical record of the project, the cameras also will give the public an opportunity to watch the least visible portion of the Twin Falls Alternate Route be built over the coming months.
"The cameras will not only serve ITD in capturing the construction procedures as it records part of this new corridor, but we think the public will really enjoy watching as the project continues and the bridge raises from the floor of the canyon," Resident Engineer Kimbol Allen said.
The site offers two angles of the work from both the north and south and updates images every 15 minutes. All pictures taken since the cameras were installed are available by calendar date and time of day. The site offers a zoom tool, time lapse photography, as well as print and save options for all pictures.
