U.S. 95, Payette River Bridge, South of Payette


Project Facts
Key number: 02842
Project number: BRF-3112(050)

This project was located on U.S. 95 between the cities of Fruitland and Payette (mileposts 66.01 - 66.55) in Payette County. U.S. 95 is the main route connecting north and south Idaho. About 18,000 vehicles use this portion of the highway daily and by 2026 the volume is expected to be 25,390.

Project Description
This U.S. 95 project replaced the northbound truss bridge (built in 1927) located on U.S. 95 between Fruitland and Payette. The new bridge is two-feet higher off the water, allows unlimited vertical clearance and is 84 feet in width, eliminating current safety concerns regarding width and height restrictions.  It also included minor roadway realignment to tie into the new bridge location.

U.S. 95 is the main route connecting north and south Idaho. The proposed new bridge was constructed between the existing southbound and northbound bridges. The new bridge was attached to the existing southbound bridge.

Construction Schedule
Construction began in summer 2010, was completed early fall 2012.
