Why it Matters
I-84 is a crucial commercial business route and commuter route, providing a critical pathway for in-state destinations and for those passing through Idaho. I-84 is the main east-west interstate route in the state, and one of the most important in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West.
The I-84 roadway surface was repaired and improved beginning west of the Black Canyon Interchange and extending for five miles to east of the Sand Hollow Interchange.
Several badly damaged concrete slabs in that stretch were removed and replaced. Repairs also included resealing pavement joints, repairing pavement cracks and chips, grinding portions off of the existing pavement surface and completing guardrail safety improvements.
