GOODING, Idaho – More than a dozen bridges on Interstate 84 will receive maintenance work starting Monday, including a bridge in Gooding County.

Work will impact various locations on the interstate, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. Thirteen locations are between Wendell and Glenns Ferry.

When necessary, traffic along I-84 will be reduced to a single lane through the work zones. Drivers should watch for reduced speed limits and restrictions throughout work zones. Drivers can check 511.idaho.gov for updates and changing restrictions.

Most impact will be incurred on the overpass roadways, many of which are country roadways and do not have direct access to I-84. Drivers can expect short delays with temporary traffic signals at most bridge locations.

Work will include minor concrete maintenance, placing an epoxy concrete sealant on the driving surface of each bridge, repairing bridge slopes, and guardrail repair. ITD says the work will help preserve the bridges and improve ride quality.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of September. Bridges included in the project:

  • Paradise Valley interchange (Exit 125)
  • King Hill interchange (Exit 129)\
  • Power Plant Road overpass
  • West Bliss interchange (Exit 137)
  • Clover Creek Road overpass
  • Bliss Union Pacific overpass
  • U.S. 26/East Bliss interchange (Exit 141)
  • 2100 South Road overpass
  • Malad River Bridges
  • Tuttle interchange (Exit 147)
  • 2800 South Road overpass
  • Idaho 46/Wendell interchange (Exit 157)
  • Old Malad River Highway Bridge
