Spokane River Bridge to be inspected

| April 2, 2024 1:00 AM

COEUR d’ALENE — Drivers on U.S. Highway 95 at the Spokane River Bridge in Coeur d’Alene should plan for delays of up to 30 minutes Thursday as crews conduct a routine inspection of the bridge structure during daylight hours.

This process requires an under-bridge inspection truck that features a platform that can lower crews beneath the structure for inspection, according to a press release.

The truck will be positioned atop the bridge, requiring the closure of a single lane to allow for crews and equipment to safely complete their work.

During this time traffic will be reduced to a single lane utilizing flaggers to control the flow of traffic.  

Travelers are encouraged to use an alternate route.
