Part of U.S. 93 to Close for Repairs in Jerome County
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) Highway 93 in Jerome County will be closed this Wednesday to fix damage caused by winter weather. The Idaho Transportation Department announced today that part of the highway at the rail road crossing near 300 South will be closed off for repairs. The closure will begin at 10 p.m. April, 5, and divert traffic around the work area. Plans are to have the highway open by 4 a.m. on Thursday.
Several concrete panels at the crossing, known as Barrymore, were damaged by winter weather creating fairly large holes. ITD will allow locals to access the area during the closure. Those using the highway will be detoured onto Interstate 84 and Idaho 25 to get to the 165 interchange.
