ITD: Watch for Traffic Pattern Change at I84/86 Interchange
UPDATE: The Idaho Transportation Department said they have pushed back when the traffic pattern will change to Oct. 15 (Thursday) next week.
DECLO, Idaho (KLIX)-The traffic pattern on a major interchange project east of Burley will change nest week week so crews can tear down an old bridge.
According to the Idaho Department of Transportation, drivers will see a change at the Interstate 84/86 interchange that will specifically impact people headed to the Pocatello area from the west possibly beginning Thursday, Oct. 15 (UPDATED).
Those headed east will be diverted towards the Salt Lake area, but will be detoured at Exit 228 at the Yale Road exit and directed back towards I-86. At the same time those drivers headed west from I-86 onto I-84 will then remain in their designated lane of travel through the construction zone.
Crews will be demolishing one of the old eastbound overpass bridge structures. ITD says drivers should pay attention to signs in the construction zone as well as the electronic message boards guiding traffic through the area.
