DESIGNATION OF THE I.B. PERRINE BRIDGE. The bridge spanning the 12 Snake River Canyon on U.S. Highway 93 south of Interstate Highway 84 near the 13 city of Twin Falls, Idaho, shall be designated as the "I.B. Perrine Bridge" to 14 honor I.B. Perrine for his part as founder and father of the Twin Falls area. 15 His dream for agriculture and his efforts to bring water to the valley set in 16 motion the development we see today. The transportation department shall erect 17 suitable signs so designating the bridge as the "I.B. Perrine Bridge." 18 SECTION 2. This act shall be in full force and effect on and after July 19 1, 2000.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS09411 Of the 1721 bridges on the state highway system, only a few are of such magnificent structure or historical significance to warrant a name to recognize an event or person playing an important part in Idaho's history. The Perrine bridge, as it is locally known meets the criteria for structural significance and historical significance. The original bridge, spanning the canyon at this same location was known as the "I.B. Perrine" bridge. The present replacement bridge, begun in 1973, spanning 1,500 feet from rim to rim and 480 feet above the Snake River has a number (#17580) but no name. People in Jerome County and Twin Falls County call the bridge "Perrine" for the principal founder of the area. The bridge should be memorialized as the "I.B. Perinne Bridge." FISCAL NOTE Negligible, except for the costs to erect, two(2)signs at either end. Estimated to be less than $500.
