On Tuesday and Wednesday evening of this week (July 28 and 29) controlled blasting will occur in the median of Interstate 84 between Twin Falls and Jerome. For safety, traffic will not be allowed through the area while this activity is underway.
Carefully controlled blasting is required to loosen the hard rock in the median.
Work will not begin before 7:30 pm. Drivers may encounter delays up to 60 minutes.
ITD is asking motorists to consider using alternate routes while this work occurs. Electronic message boards and signage will be activated on the interstate in advance of the event. Motorists are advised to adhere to signs and pay attention to flaggers and pilot cars that will be utilized to slow traffic on the interstate.
