The Idaho Transportation Department is conducting a traffic study and environmental analysis for I-84 between Caldwell and the Karcher Interchange in Nampa. This is part of a plan to invest more than $300 million into I-84 in Canyon County over the next several years.
The study will include evaluating several potential improvements, including additional lanes on I-84 and improvements to existing interchanges.
ITD will consider potential impacts to adjacent properties, minority populations, noise, floodplains, wetlands and many other factors. Public input is a key element of the study.
The Federal Highway Administration has accepted a proposal from ITD to look at the I-84, Caldwell to Karcher environmental document in smaller parts. This allows ITD to advance the section of I-84 between Franklin Road and Karcher Road.
Outcomes of the traffic study will help ITD identify needed improvements and confirm how far west into Caldwell the improvements need to be made.View Traffic Study Maps
