The Exit 33B westbound ramp on the Interstate 84 Karcher Interchange in Nampa will be permanently removed Monday, Oct. 15. Crews will remove the ramp beginning at 8 p.m. Monday and work will be complete by 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Moving forward, all westbound traffic will use the loop ramp, which will be referred to as Exit 33. Signs in the area will reflect the change.

Reconstruction of the interchange is on schedule to be complete by the first week of November. Project improvements include:

*Adding a second southbound lane to Midland Blvd.
*Adding a second left turn lane from the Karcher Bypass to southbound Midland Blvd.
*Upgrading sidewalks and traffic signals.

The project is jointly funded by the city of Nampa and ITD. Central Paving is the contractor.
