Repairs to a heavily worn section of Interstate 84 in the Treasure Valley will get underway soon.

The Idaho Transportation Department will start repairing and resurfacing the pothole-pocked pavement between Nampa and Caldwell this summer. During four weekends all I-84 traffic will be moved to one side of the interstate while crews work to rebuild the opposite side.

During the repairs, ITD says only one lane of traffic will be open each way between Nampa and Caldwell from 7 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Other traffic impacts include some nighttime lane restrictions, shoulder closures and speed restrictions.

The final weekend work dates will be scheduled based on weather predictions and traffic counts. More specific details on the project will be outlined by ITD at an open house Thursday, May 25 at Nampa's Hampton Inn.
