The Idaho Transportation Department and the city of Nampa will begin improvements to the ramps at the I-84/Karcher Interchange in Nampa beginning the week of July 9. The project is scheduled to be complete this fall, said ITD spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez.
Construction will include:
-Eliminating exit 33B and adding lanes at exit 33A/Midland Blvd
-Adding a second southbound lane to Midland Blvd
-Adding a second left turn lane from the Karcher Bypass to southbound Midland Blvd
-Upgrading sidewalks and traffic signals
“Motorists should plan ahead and be prepared for shifts in traffic patterns, periodic ramp closures, and other detours during construction,” Gonzalez said.
The project is being funded jointly by the city of Nampa and ITD. Central Paving is the contractor.
