NAMPA, Idaho — A heads up if you are driving on Interstate 84 in Nampa this weekend.
The Idaho Transportation Department announced it will close several I-84 ramps during the overnight hours, beginning Friday, Jan. 15 to install overhead sign structures above the ramps.
Here's what you can expect:
Friday, Jan 15 at 10 p.m. until Saturday, Jan. 16 at 7 a.m.:
• The I-84 eastbound off ramp at Northside Boulevard (exit 35) will be closed. Motorists must exit at Franklin Boulevard (exit 36) and travel westbound I-84 to exit at Northside Boulevard.
Saturday, Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. until Sunday, Jan. 17 at 7 a.m.:
• The I-84 eastbound off-ramp at Franklin Boulevard (exit 36) will be closed. Motorists must exit at Garrity/Idaho Center Boulevard (exit 38) and travel westbound I-84 to exit at Franklin Boulevard.
