FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

I-84 pavement maintenance and repair from Mountain Home to Hammett to begin in early summer

ELMORE COUNTY - A 25-mile pavement maintenance and repair project on Interstate 84 from Mountain Home east to Hammett is slated to begin in early summer.

The project involves the replacement of several joint seals, extensive crack sealing and the replacement of deteriorated concrete slabs. It also involves the application of sealant to shoulders to protect the surface against weather and water damage and prevent additional cracking.

Typically one lane will be closed in the immediate project area, which will be limited to about a half-mile at a time. In some areas of slab replacement, lanes will remain closed longer.

A Core of Idaho, of Boise, is the contractor on the $2.54 million project.
