Comment: This project replaces the existing N. Fork Payette River Bridge at the north end of the City of Cascade. There will be one 11’ lane open in each direction at all times, except for the occasional temporary reduction to one lane, controlled by flaggers. Speed limit through the project limits is 25 MPH. Pedestrian traffic is restricted until the completion of the entire new bridge. Traffic lanes have been shifted onto the new structure to allow work on Stage Two to begin; however SH55 will be open with one free lane northbound and southbound from noon Fridays through 6 AM Mondays throughout the duration of the project. There will be occasional short term single lane closures controlled by flaggers during weekdays. Expect short delays.
