Idaho Transportation Department looking at possibility of building new bridge to cross canyon

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) -The Idaho Transportation Department is looking at the possibility of building a third bridge to cross the Snake River canyon in Twin Falls and Jerome counties.

ITD is exploring five potential areas in the Twin Falls and Jerome areas for a possible future bridge, but they stress that this is so far into the future, and in such an early stage, that nothing has been set in stone.

Three of the possible locations are west of the Perrine bridge, one location is east of the Perrine bridge, while the fifth option is to widen the Hansen bridge.
