Lardo Bridge Closure to Begin OCTOBER 15
Lardo Bridge over North Fork Payette River at the outlet to Payette Lake in McCall on Idaho 55 will close for approximately one month starting Monday (Oct. 13) while the existing bridge is demolished and the new bridge is slid into place, the Idaho Transportation Department announced. The lateral slide, accelerated construction method being used on Lardo Bridge, is the first to occur in Idaho by ITD. This method reduces a full closure of the bridge by months.
Traffic will be detoured to Boydstun Street and Deinhard Lane. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained (see map):
Access west of Lardo Bridge:
From downtown McCall: Take Idaho 55 to Deinhard Lane, turn right and follow Deinhard to Boydstun Street.
From south of McCall: Take Idaho 55 to Deinhard Lane, turn left and follow Deinhard to Boydstun Street.
Access east of Lardo Bridge:
From north of McCall: Take Idaho 55 to Boydstun Street, turn right and follow Boydstun Street to Deinhard Lane.
From south of McCall: Take Idaho 55 into downtown McCall.
The Idaho Transportation Department is replacing the 83-year old Lardo Bridge on the southwest shore of Payette Lake. Ralph L. Wadsworth and Lochner used ITD's conceptual design to complete the bridge design and build a new bridge that will accommodate one lane of traffic in each direction along with bicycle and pedestrian facilities on each side of the bridge.
Comments and concerns should be directed to both:
