NAMPA — Idaho Transportation Department crews will be shutting down a stretch of Interstate 84 in Nampa next Monday and Tuesday nights (June 10 and 11) to place girders on the new Karcher Road Overpass.

Eastbound I-84 lanes will be closed overnight Monday, June 10. A detour will begin at 10 p.m. Monday and end at 5 a.m. Tuesday, June 11.

Westbound I-84 lanes will be closed overnight Tuesday, June 11. A detour will begin at 10 p.m. Tuesday and end at 6 a.m. Wednesday, June 12.

Drivers will need to follow a detour route on Karcher Road both nights. (see map)

“ITD will place ten steel girders over the two nights. Each girder is 136 feet long and weighs approximately 115,670 pounds,” said Alex Deduck, ITD Design/Construction Engineer. “This is no small operation, and we appreciate the patience of the traveling public during the detour.”

ITD is replacing the Karcher Overpass to accommodate additional lanes on I-84.

Construction to widen I-84 will begin later this summer.
