Overnight interstate detours scheduled soon as repaving project begins
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) – Motorists can expect overnight Interstate 84 detours on Sunday and Monday nights (May 21 and 22) between the Northside and Franklin Boulevard interchanges in Nampa.
The detours are part of the Idaho Transportation Department’s initial work to repave I-84 between Nampa and Caldwell this summer.
From 8 p.m. Sunday to 5 am Monday, westbound I-84 will close between the Franklin Boulevard and Northside Boulevard interchanges.
Traffic must exit westbound I-84 at Franklin Boulevard (exit 36) and travel north to Karcher Road, west to Northside Boulevard and south to re-enter I-84 at the Northside Interchange. View the westbound detour map.
From 8 pm Monday to 5 am Tuesday, eastbound I-84 will be closed.
Traffic must exit I-84 at Northside Boulevard (exit 35) and travel north to Karcher Road, east to Franklin Boulevard and south to re-enter I-84 at the Franklin Boulevard Interchange.
ITD will share details about construction activities and sequencing at a community open house Thursday, May 25 at the Hampton Inn at 5770 Franklin Road in Nampa.
Community members are invited to come at their convenience from 11 am to 1:30 pm or from 3 pm to 6:30 pm.
ITD is using nighttime and weekend traffic control to keep all lanes of I-84 open during the weekday.
“We are strongly encouraging everyone who regularly uses I-84 to stop by the open house next week. It will take the whole community working together to keep traffic moving during weekend construction activities. Our goal is to keep the community well-informed about what to expect and when,” said ITD District 3 Engineer Amy Revis.
On four future weekends this summer, ITD will shift all traffic to one side of I-84 as the other side is under construction.
On these four weekends, I-84 will be reduced to one lane in both directions between Nampa and Caldwell from 7 pm Friday to 5 am Monday.
Community members may request email notification of the four weekend dates and other project milestones by texting INTERSTATE84 to 22828.
The project includes repaving I-84 between the Franklin Boulevard Interchange in Nampa and the Franklin Road Interchange in Caldwell.
Guardrails will be improved and selected ramps will be repaved at the Franklin Boulevard and Northside Boulevard interchanges.
