CHUBBUCK – On Wednesday August 10th the Chubbuck Road overpass will be closed over I-15 to facilitate demolition of the overpass. As part of the “Leading Idaho” program’s I-86/I-15 System Interchange rebuild, the Chubbuck Road crossing will be converted from an overpass to an underpass.
Due to the amount of traffic on I-15, construction of the new underpass will occur in stages while the rest of the project progresses. As such, the new underpass is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2024.
This project is partially funded with Transportation Expansion and Congestion Mitigation (TECM) funds as part of Governor Little’s Leading Idaho initiative. The program allows ITD to accelerate project timelines to address rapid growth and build critical infrastructure today that would otherwise take many years to fund and build.
The Chubbuck Road detour will take motorists through the Northgate Interchange.
The new design changes Chubbuck Road into an underpass with additional space for pedestrians and bicycle lanes.
