The I. B. Perrine Bridge at Twin Falls, Idaho, United States, is a truss arch four-lane bridge carrying U.S. Highway 93 over the Snake River Canyon. Perrine Bridge is approximately 1500ft long and 486ft above the Snake River. The elevation of the road deck is approximately 3600ft above sea level. The bridge serves as the Twin Falls area's main link to Jerome County and Interstate 84.Originally named the Twin Falls-Jerome Intercounty Bridge, a steel cantilever bridge was opened to traffic in September 1927, and at the time, was the highest bridge in the world. The privately financed $650,000 structure was originally a toll bridge, but the tolls were eliminated in 1940 after the bridge was purchased by the state of Idaho.By the early 1970s, the original bridge was outdated and unable to handle heavy loads and required replacement. Construction on the current bridge began in May 1973 and was completed in July 1976 at a cost of $9,700,000, and the original cantilever bridge to the west was disassembled.The bridge is named for I. B. Perrine, who spearheaded the early 20th century irrigation projects in the Magic Valley region and is largely credited as the main founder of Twin Falls.

  • Really great view and it is quite pretty to take pictures of. There were some base jumpers jumping so that was fun to see.  more »
  • Easy to view this bridge from the Visitor Center on the southside of the bridge, or there are turnouts from either direction. The bridge itself is interesting, or there is the view of the Snake River ...  more »
  • Nicely designed bridge. Impressive to see from the view point. Nice views of the Snake. Definitely worth your time to pull over and take a look.  more »

  • Great experience to walk across the pedestrian part of the bridge to see incredible views of the canyon and river below. The whole family enjoyed it.
  • Great experience and walk! The bridge and river are impressive. The jumpers are sick...
  • The park was in acceptable condition when I went there. The walking route inside the park is rather short; although some people may prefer walking uphill-downhill towards the top of the cliff to make it more challenging. The dust from the cars running along the road may prove bothersome as well. Other than that, you can see the magnificent bridge all the way from below the cliff, which is very memorable.
  • this little park is a great way to stretch and see the canyon and the bridge it self. very clean with a nice visitor center. small area but worth it.
  • Base Jumping off the bridge is a great sight to watch Best view is from the bridge
