Lewis Street Bridge Replacement Project Delayed

Lewis St. Pocatello

UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the start of the Lewis Street Bridge Replacement Project has been delayed by three to four weeks.


PREVIOUS RELEASE: A bridge that’s been in service for nearly 70 years is set to be replaced.


Starting February 21, crews will begin the task of replacing the 61-foot Lewis Street Bridge. During construction, the bridge will be closed and vehicle and pedestrian traffic detoured to the crossing at West Center Street via Hayes Avenue and Johnson Avenue.


“Like all structures, the Lewis Street Bridge has reached the end of its useful life,” said Merril Quayle, Public Works/Development Engineer for the City of Pocatello. “The bridge was constructed in 1948 and predates the concrete channel for the Portneuf River, which was installed in 1969.”


Construction is scheduled to take four months to complete and officials apologize for any inconvenience the work may cause. Due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, the work schedule may be delayed.


The estimated cost of the project is $1.3 million with the City contributing approximately $99,800. The remaining balance of the project is being paid with federal funding sources.


A map of the road closures can be found at bit.ly/2kxyeg3.
