During the closures, flaggers will direct traffic to exit and re-enter I-84 using the interchange ramps. The schedule is weather dependent.
ITD is reconstructing the Vista Interchange to ease congestion, increase safety and improve traffic flow. The project won an award earlier this month from engineering organization WTS for its innovative design and accelerated schedule.
The $17.8 million project is expected to be complete in Fall 2010. Central Paving Inc. is the contractor.
Construction is funded through the federal stimulus program, created to generate jobs and help boost Idahos economy while upgrading our foundation for future economic growth.
ITD and the Idaho State Police caution motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and dial 5-1-1 or visit 511.idaho.gov for information on the state highway or interstate system.
