Starting Friday at 10 p.m. until Saturday at 7 a.m., the eastbound I-84 off-ramp at Northside Boulevard (exit 35) will close. Drivers will exit at Franklin Boulevard (exit 36) and travel westbound I-84 to exit at Northside Boulevard.
From Saturday at 10 p.m. until Sunday at 7 a.m., The I-84 eastbound off-ramp at Franklin Boulevard will close. Drivers will exit at Garrity/Idaho Center Boulevard (exit 38) and travel westbound I-84 to exit at Franklin Boulevard.
On Monday at 10 p.m. until Tuesday at 5 a.m., the I-84 westbound on-ramp at Northside Boulevard will close. Drivers will travel from Northside Boulevard to Karcher Road and enter westbound I-84 at Karcher/Midland Boulevard.
This is the final phase of construction on this portion of the I-84 corridor. Major work still has to happen to rebuild the Northside Boulevard interchange into a single-point urban interchange. The work in Nampa is expected to be finished in the spring.
The reconstruction of the Middleton Road and Ustick Road overpasses is required to add a third lane in each direction between the Karcher/Midland interchange and Franklin Road in Caldwell.
The work started in 2019 and is primarily funded through GARVEE bonds and a federal INFRA grant, which included local and state matching funds. The investment in the corridor will increase safety, address congestion and benefit the regional economy.
