The GARVEE-funded project covers a nine-mile corridor extends from the Orchard Interchange to the Gowen Interchange. The project includes replacing the existing two lanes of concrete pavement, widening to meet needs through 2035, and replacing four interchanges. This project was expanded as part of the Connecting Idaho program to include I-84 between the Isaac’s Canyon interchange to just west of the Orchard Interchange. Construction is currently underway, and is scheduled for completion the summer of 2011. Work on the corridor is divided into four projects: Cole Interchange to Broadway IC Soundwalls, Cole Interchange to Broadway Interchange, Orchard Street Interchange, and Broadway Interchange to Eisenman Interchange.
