Delays expected at Lind interchange

LIND – Drivers on state Highway 26 and U.S. Highway 395 can expect delays as bridge maintenance begins.

State Department of Transportation crews were scheduled to start cleaning and replacing bearings on pads on the Highway 26 overpass above Highway 395.

The work is necessary as one of the bearing pads under the structure needs cleaning and realignment, officials said. Crews will be jacking up the structure, removing the bearing pad, cleaning it, and then aligning it in the correct position.

Work was planned for 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, officials said.

Westbound travelers on Highway 26 and northbound US 395 will be to East Cunningham Road, where they will make a U-turn at the intersection, travel south on U.S. 395 to the Highway 26 interchange to continue westbound.

Eastbound Highway 26 and southbound U.S. 395 motorists who want to head east will be detoured to Williams Road past the state Highway 26 interchange, make a U-turn at the intersection and then travel back northbound on U.S. 395 to the interchange, where they can either continue north on U..S 395 or east on Highway 26.
