I-84 pavement rehabilitation begins mid-August in Boise
BOISE – Pavement rehabilitation on Interstate 84 from the Five Mile overpass to the Orchard Street Interchange is scheduled to begin in mid-August and continue through the fall.
All construction will occur at night, and the road will reopen to normal conditions during the day.
This project is designed to extend the life of the existing pavement, reduce road noise, and provide for smoother travel. Work includes pavement grinding, joint resealing, crack repairs, and permanent pavement marking along I-84 and adjoining ramps at the Flying Wye and Cole/Overland.
*Construction is scheduled between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. during the week.
*Friday night through Saturday morning: 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
*Saturday night through Sunday morning: 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.
Construction operations will start on eastbound I-84, then progress to westbound I-84. During construction, traffic lane reductions will be in place in both directions. Ramp closures will also occur as operations pass by each ramp. Detours will be provided.
There may be increased noise and light impacts to nearby residents while crews complete pavement grinding.
No overnight work will occur in the construction zone the night of Aug. 20 and 21 to accommodate motorists that may be traveling in the area for the solar eclipse.
Penhall Company is the contractor for this project.
