Reconstruction work requiring the closure of the westbound I-84 off-ramp at Franklin Road (Exit 29) in Caldwell is finished, and the off-ramp is now open to traffic.
The Idaho Transportation Department thanks motorists for their patience during the closure that allowed the contractor to safely expedite reconstruction of the off-ramp over the past six weeks. The work contributes to ongoing improvements to U.S. Highway 20/26 between I-84 and Middleton Road.
The contractor completed the work requiring the closure yesterday afternoon. Workers may still be in the area periodically, so drivers are asked to be aware and engaged in the project area.
Motorists will see changing traffic patterns in the coming weeks on US-20/26 between I-84 and Middleton Road. Travel lanes will shift to the north as work is focused on the south side of the highway. Drivers should pay particular attention to the lane configuration between Aviation Way and Smeed Parkway by slowing down and following construction signs.
Reconstruction of US-20/26 between I-84 and Middleton Road is scheduled to be complete in 2024.
