FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Boise Connector project slated for this summer

BOISE - A preventative maintenance project is scheduled for this summer on the Connector (I-184) in Boise, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

For about five miles, from the Flying Wye to 13th Street, crews will re-seal joints and grind off the concrete surface to increase skid resistance. The project will likely start in June and finish in August.

Crews will adhere to a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. schedule, working overnight in order to minimize traffic interference. Work will not be allowed on the nights of home Boise State University football games.

A temporary closure of the ramps will be necessary for the contractor to properly grind and re-seal in those areas.

Weekend work is not expected, but is not prohibited if necessary.

At least one lane will be maintained during the work, with the speed limit reduced to 45 mph in the construction zone.
