I-84 Bridge Resurfacing Projects Begin Next Week
Bliss, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) – Bridge resurfacing projects that start next week are expected to have minor traffic impacts along Interstate 84 in Gooding and Elmore counties.
Beginning Tuesday May 27, crews will resurface the two railroad overpass bridges, one in each direction, near the east Bliss Interchange (Exit 141). Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction during the project.
Half of each bridge will close while crews remove the driving surface, pour a new concrete surface and complete other necessary maintenance. Access to the on- and off-ramps to I-84 at Exit 141 will be maintained throughout the work, but drivers are reminded to use caution for merging traffic.
A 65-mph speed limit and a 13-foot width limit will be in effect through the work zone on I-84. All wide loads will be required to exit I-84 at either Exit 141 or 137 and travel on the I-84 business loop through Bliss.
Bridge resurfacing will begin Wednesday May 28 at the Paradise Valley Interchange at Exit 125. The roadway, also known as Pasadena Valley Road, will be reduced to one lane and overpass traffic will be controlled with a temporary traffic signal. A 13-foot width limit and 35-mph speed limit will be in effect on the overpass.
