Construction Update as of (12/6/18): This project is on an accelerated schedule with completion anticipated by summer 2019.
Crews successfully removed the damaged overpass Monday (December 3rd) and Tuesday (December 4th) nights this week. Now that the bridge has been torn down, crews are paving the shoulders and adjusting the lane striping so traffic can be shifted to make room for the new bridge. You can expect nighttime lane closures on both east and westbound I-84 through next week while this work is completed. All lanes will be open in time for morning and evening commutes.
In addition to the work on the bridge, crews will be working on setting a temporary barrier at the Ridenbaugh canal and begin work to widen the bridge over the canal. There will be utility relocations ongoing throughout the project.
What to Expect During Construction:
Update - October 2018
We are happy to report that the design for both the roadway and overpass has been completed. The next step is to put the project out to bid and bring a construction contractor on board. We anticipate construction will begin in January.

Mark Your Calendars!
We will be at Idaho Power's Cloverdale Transmission Line Upgrade Open Houses on August 22 and 29 to share the latest information about the Cloverdale overpass and roadway project. Please join us to review the progress made to date on the project and have your questions answered.
In June, the Cloverdale Road overpass sustained extensive fire damage caused from a tragic crash on Interstate 84. As a result, the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will be replacing the overpass with a new structure. In coordination with this work, the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) will be improving Cloverdale Road between Franklin Road and Camas Drive.
ITD will replace the Cloverdale Road overpass with a wider bridge that will include:
The structure will also have a higher clearance over I-84 and be built to accommodate a future fifth lane expansion of the Interstate.
ACHD will redesign the approaches to the overpass to include:
