Reconstruction of two bridges on U.S. 95 in Parma is scheduled to begin in the next few days, according to the Idaho Transportation Department.

“Work will occur at the junction of U.S. 95 and U.S. 20/26 and include the reconstruction of the Union Pacific Railroad overpass, Sand Hollow Creek Bridge and nearby pavement rehabilitation,” said ITD spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez.

The project is scheduled to be complete this winter.

A posted detour will be in place during the project. A separate truck detour will also be posted.

“The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph in the work zone. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph on U.S. 20/26 when shoulder or median work is occurring. Flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone during different phases of the project,” Gonzalez said.

Most work will occur Monday through Friday, and occasional weekends.

Drivers are encouraged to check for construction updates and detour information.
