BOISE – Bridge preservation work on the Emerald Street overpass of I-184 (the Connector) between Cole Road and Curtis Road, is complete. The bridge reopens to all traffic beginning Saturday morning (May 19).
Preservation work on additional Treasure Valley bridges will continue this summer at the following locations:
- 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
Unlike at Emerald, remaining work will not require full closures and most work will be completed at night. Motorists can expect lane reductions and reduced speeds.
“Bridge preservation work is intended to strengthen the bridge surfaces and extend the life of the pavement, reducing the need for additional maintenance at a later date,” said Crystal Grasmick, ITD Project Manager. “We appreciate the traveling public’s patience as we work through these important improvements.”
Cannon Builders, Inc. is the contractor on this $2.7 million project. For up-to-date traffic impact information, visit 511.idaho.gov.
