I think we can all agree that the wooden stairs at Dierkes Lake are a little scary. But the walk around Dierkes is a great workout with a great view. So many of us have ran up, or down, the stairs while holding our breath.

The good news is the stairs are going to be replaced so you won't have to hold your breath anymore!

Construction work is set to get underway at Dierkes Lake next week.

According to MagicValley.com, the existing wooden stairs are being removed and replaced with a combination of metal and Trex decking that is estimated to last for the next 50 years.

The stairs on the east side of Dierkes Lake will be closed for the next few months.

In addition, two smaller sets of stairs will be constructed in the same area.

The construction will make the hike around the lake safer for everyone.
