Road Repairs to portions of I-84 have been postponed because due to rain and snow forecast in the Treasure Valley.  Read what areas will impact your commute here.

Idaho Transportation Department crews are suspending repairs on eastbound Interstate 84 from Exit 29 to mile post 31 west of Nampa to clear lanes for travel and snow removal ahead of forecasted winter storms.

ITD has been working as often as weather has allowed to repair many potholes that have formed on I-84 between Nampa and Caldwell - a result of record snowfall, rain, and cold temperatures. Crews finished repairs on westbound lanes early Tuesday, Jan. 17. Work on eastbound lanes also started Tuesday morning, but will be suspended during the forecasted rain and snow.

The one-lane restriction created for that eastbound repair work will be lifted during this time. With both lanes open, motorists will have more room to safely maneuver during and after the storm, and plows will have better access to remove snow.

ITD plans to resume repairs as soon as weather conditions allow. Crews will monitor the roadway throughout the storms to make sure it is safe to drive on.

The transportation department thanks motorists for their patience as these emergency repairs are being made. We continue to urge motorists to drive cautiously during winter storms and stay aware of their surroundings.
