LEWISTON, ID - If you're traveling across Memorial Bridge in Lewiston Tuesday expect delays throughout the day.

Idaho Department of Transportation spokesperson Mel Coulter said they're closing one lane at a time Tuesday to fix joints on the bridge. They'll start work at seven in the morning and won't get done until four p.m.

"Our intent is to fill the ruts in the pavement that are caused by the vehicle traffic so that there's a smooth transition from the driving surface to the bridge," said Coulter.

Drivers should be ready to face slight delays during the rush hours. Crews are asking that you slow down and keep a fair distance from the construction crews working on the bridge.
