Series of Night Closures Near Declo Begins Thursday
DECLO, Idaho (KLIX) – Expect to be detoured on several days over the next two weeks if you’re traveling at night on Interstate 84 between the Heyburn and Declo interchanges.
Detours will begin about 10 p.m. on June 15, 22 and 29, according to the Idaho Transportation Department.
During nighttime closures, traffic will be detoured between the Heyburn Interchange (Exit 211) and the Declo Interchange (Exit 216). Westbound traffic will be detoured off I-84 at Exit 216, south to Declo on Idaho 77, west to Burley on Idaho 81, and return to I-84 through Heyburn. Eastbound traffic will leave I-84 at Exit 211, detour north on Idaho 24 to Rupert, then go east and south on Idaho 25 to I-84.
Crews will be pouring concrete on the eastbound Snake River bridge at milepost 216 near the Declo interchange, necessitating the temporary closure.
Bridge construction started in 2015, according to ITD. The westbound bridge was completed and reopened to traffic in 2016. All work on the $17.9 million project is expected to be complete by the end of August.
