A stretch of Interstate-84 in Nampa has received a $90 million grant to be widened in Nampa.

The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) and the Idaho Transportation Department say the grant was received through the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America federal transportation grant program.

The money will be used to address significant bottleneck where the interstate narrows from three lanes to two in each direction.

“The importance of this project cannot be understated,” states City of Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling. “I appreciate the efforts of COMPASS as they developed the grant application to secure these funds. This project is very important to Nampa, the entire Treasure Valley, and our state.”

The US Congress has 60 days to review before the award can be made.

The 2.9 mile stretch of interstate sees about 100,000 vehicle trips per day, and commercial trucks comprise a significant percentage of that traffic.
