BOISE — The Idaho Transportation Department will close sections of Interstate 84 in Boise during overnight hours beginning Monday, March 4, weather permitting. Crews will place girders for the new Cloverdale Overpass bridge.
The closures will be on Monday and Tuesday, March 4th and 5th, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. All westbound lanes of I-84 will be closed between the Cole/Overland interchange and the Eagle Road interchange. Two of the four eastbound lanes in this section will also be closed. Westbound traffic will be detoured off the Interstate at Cole/Overland or the Flying Wye. Motorists can use Franklin Road or Overland Road to head west to Eagle Road for access to the Interstate.
On Wednesday and Thursday, March 6th and 7th, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. all eastbound lanes of I-84 will be closed between the Eagle Road interchange and the Cole/Overland interchange. Two of the four westbound lanes in this section will also be closed. Eastbound traffic will be detoured off the Interstate at Eagle Rd. Motorists can use Franklin or Overland to head east until the Flying Wye or the Cole/Overland interchange to access the Interstate.
ITD said construction crews will set girders for the new Cloverdale Overpass bridge spanning I-84 just west of Boise. The closures are required to preserve the safety of the traveling public and allow the work to be done. These overnight closures are the final anticipated Interstate closures needed for this project.
"We are making considerable progress on the bridge replacement and road widening for Cloverdale," said Jayme Coonce, ITD resident engineer. "This has been an accelerated project since day one and a testament to the partnership and good work of ITD and the Ada County Highway District. We appreciate the public's support and patience during construction as we complete these improvements."
The project, which began in January, will widen Cloverdale Road from two lanes to four travel lanes with bike lanes and sidewalks. said ITD.
