Work partially closes bridge to Jackson

Courtesy photo Work began this week on the bridge across the Snake River on Highway 191 causing delays after 8:30 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Snake River Bridge. All the work on the Snake River Bridge will take place at night, from 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m., for

roughly a week.

Crews will close one lane of traffic at night to perform the work. Drivers can expect to see flagger-controlled traffic delays

beginning 8:30 p.m. each night until 10 p.m., at which time traffic will be controlled by the temporary signals currently in place.

Traffic will be controlled by the signals until 5 a.m. and traffic may see flagger-controlled delays again until 6 a.m.

After a safety inspection earlier this year, the bridge was subject to modified load limitations for trucks. The work taking place

next week will allow the bridge to return to its unrestricted condition prior to the inspection until its replacement in 2023. After

the work is completed, all posted restrictions will be lifted.

The Snake River Bridge and the WYO 390 intersection are currently in the planning phases of construction and are set for

reconstruction starting in spring of 2023
