The following is a news release from Idaho Transportation Department.

IDAHO FALLS – Traffic will be detoured in the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 11 for motorists heading eastbound on Interstate 84 from Burley toward Pocatello. During this time, crews will work to place concrete on the deck of the newly constructed steel girder bridge.

This temporary traffic pattern is expected to be in effect between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.

This is part of the Salt Lake Interchange replacement project, underway since May of last year. Construction is scheduled to finish by late 2020.

Drivers should still anticipate reduced speeds through the work zone and pay close attention to signage, which will be in place to safely direct motorists through the area.

Wadsworth Brothers Construction, of Draper, Utah is the prime contractor on this project.

ITD and the Idaho State Police advise motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and dial 5-1-1 or visit for information on the state highway or interstate system.
