Preservation work on area bridges will require full closure of Emerald Street overpass in Boise for one month beginning in mid-April

Preservation work on numerous Treasure Valley bridges will begin this spring. Work on the Emerald Street bridge between Cole Road and Curtis Road over I-184 (the Connector) will require a full closure.

Improvements will protect and preserve bridge life.

Construction on Emerald is scheduled for mid-April through late May. During construction, the bridge will be closed to automobile traffic. Pedestrian and bicycle access will remain open over the bridge. Access to local streets, homes and business in the area will be maintained.

Schedule may change due to weather.

During construction, the detour for Emerald will be Fairview Avenue or Franklin Street via Cole and Curtis. Noise and light impacts are anticipated in the work zone. Overnight lane closures on the Connector will occur near the bridge.

Preservation work on other bridges elsewhere will not require full closures. Motorists can expect lane reductions and reduced speeds in the following locations, April through May:
– I-84, Meridian Road Interchange
– I-84, Broadway Avenue Interchange
– I-84, Cole-Overland Interchange
– I-84, Gowen Road Interchange
– Broadway Avenue, Boise River Bridge
