Update: I-184 (Connector) WYE Flyover Bridge Work begins late August-ramp closures scheduled next week
BOISE – Pavement rehabilitation on Interstate 84 between the Five Mile Road Overpass and the Orchard Street Interchange is underway and will continue through fall.
This project will extend the life of the existing pavement, reduce road noise, and provide smoother travel.
Construction will occur at night, and the road will reopen to normal conditions during the day.
*Construction will occur between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weekday nights.
*Friday nights through Saturday mornings: 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.
*Saturday nights through Sunday mornings: 10 p.m. to 9 a.m.
The work includes pavement grinding, joint resealing, crack repairs, and permanent pavement marking along I-84 and adjoining ramps at the WYE and the Cole Road/Overland Road interchanges. Construction operations will begin on eastbound I-84 then progress to westbound I-84.
During construction, traffic lane reductions will occur in both direction. Ramp closures will also occur as work progresses. Detours will be provided.
There will be increased noise and light impacts to area residents while crews complete the pavement grinding.
Preservation work on the outbound Connector (I-184) to eastbound I-84 WYE flyover will begin next week. Improvements will protect and preserve pavement life.
Motorists can expect lane reductions and reduced speeds in the work zone.
The Milwaukee Street/Franklin Road, I-84 on-ramps will be closed during a portion of the construction schedule. Traffic will be detoured to the Cole Road, I-84 on-ramps.
Work will occur 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday-Thursday.
Minimal noise and light impacts are also anticipated in the work zone.
