I-84: Jerome to Twin Falls Rehabilitation
The Idaho Transportation Department is rehabilitating Interstate 84 in Jerome County.
The project will span approximately seven miles of highway between the South Jerome and Twin Falls Interchanges. Both eastbound and westbound lanes will be rehabilitated.
Questions or Comments?
Rehabilitation of the westbound lanes will occur in 2020.
Rehabilitation of the eastbound lanes will occur in 2021.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in both directions.
This portion of the interstate was built in 1963 and has seen numerous maintenance projects over the years. I-84 serves as a major east/west corridor throughout South-central Idaho and beyond.
Annual daily traffic counts on these roadways average approximately 24,000 vehicles per day. That number is expected to increase substantially over the next 20 years. At present, this portion of I-84 is showing signs of distress which, if left untouched, would continue to deteriorate.
Rehabilitation will resolve problems and allow for the roadway to support the growing demand of traffic along the interstate.
