Rock Creek Bridge Work Starts Monday

The Rock Creek Bridge on U.S. 95 near Worley will be repaired beginning Monday, Sept. 13. Work is expected to take about two months.

Construction crews will be repairing the approaches to the bridge for both north- and southbound lanes. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in both directions across the bridge, and will remain that way until the project is completed. Lane reductions will be in effect on nights and weekends.

The speed limit will be reduced to 50 mph. There will be no restrictions on commercial truck traffic.

The work on the bridge is part of the original project north of Worley that widened U.S. 95 to a four-lane, divided highway with an interchange at the Idaho 58 junction.
