The on- and off-ramps at Cole and Franklin Roads in west Boise -– at Interstate 84 and I-184 (the Connector) -- are scheduled for periodic, nighttime closures through this week, to allow for pavement rehabilitation work.
Pavement rehabilitation on Interstate 84 between the Five Mile Road Overpass and the Orchard Street Interchange will continue through the fall. “This work will extend the life of the existing pavement, reduce road noise, and provide for smoother travel,” said Idaho Transportation Department spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez.
All construction is occurring at night, and the road will reopen to normal conditions during the day. All traffic detours will be posted.
Construction will occur between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weekday nights.
On Friday night through Saturday morning, crews will work from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.; on Saturday night through Sunday morning, crews will work from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m.
“The work includes pavement grinding, joint resealing, crack repairs, and permanent pavement marking along I-84 and adjoining ramps at the WYE and Cole/Overland interchanges,” Gonzalez explained.
During construction, traffic lane reductions will occur in both directions. Additional ramp closures will also occur as work progresses. Detours will be provided.
There will be increased noise and light impacts to area residents while crews complete the pavement grinding, Gonzalez added.
