Construction Update

Construction has begun on the Broadway Interchange Replacement Project. Crews are installing drainage, relocating utility lines and bringing in material for the I-84 ramps.

Current traffic impacts include:

  • Overnight lane restrictions will continue on I-84 for the next several weeks from 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday, and until 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
  • The speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph on I-84 and 25 mph on Broadway Avenue.

In addition to the Broadway Avenue Interchange construction, ITD will be replacing the Gowen Road Interchange in Boise and the Meridian Road Interchange in Meridian.


Background

This project is a result of an Environmental Assessment and a planning study for I-84 from just west of the Orchard Interchange to the Isaacs Canyon Interchange (Eisenman Road). The interstate, built in the late 1960s, was not designed to handle the current traffic volumes. The study recommended improvements for this corridor, including replacing the existing pavement, adding lanes to the interstate, installation of soundwalls, and reconstructing the Orchard, Vista, Broadway, and Gowen interchanges to meet future traffic capacity requirements.

ITD received environmental approval for this project from the Federal Highway Administration in November 2007. For more information about the Environmental Assessment, click here.


Construction Schedule

Work will begin in the spring of 2014 and end in late 2015. Concrete Placing Company is the contractor.

  • Spring 2014: Crews begin constructing the new bridge over I-84 at Broadway.
  • Summer 2014: Work begins on eastbound I-84 and Broadway Avenue.
  • Fall 2014: Work begins on westbound I-84.
  • Summer 2015: New I-84 lanes open.
  • Late 2015: New Broadway Interchange complete.

Funding

The Broadway Interchange construction will cost $26.7 million. Funding will come from two sources: the GARVEE Transportation Program and traditional federal transportation funds.

ITD saved $80 million during the GARVEE program due to efficient management and competitive construction bids. The savings will fund reconstruction of the Meridian, Broadway and Gowen interchanges. ITD has provided an additional $44 million for these projects from traditional federal transportation funds.
