Ninety Million-Plus Federal Dollars Earmarked to Improve Stretch of I-84 

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced today that it is earmarking more than $90 million in federal funds to improve one of the Gem State's most heavily-traveled stretches of highway. The Idaho Department of Transportation will receive $90,240,000 to improve nearly three miles of I-84 from the Karcher Interchange to Franklin Boulevard. The improvements will include widening I-84 to three lanes in each direction, replacing and widening an overpass and expanding two bridges over a railroad and canal.

The grant will come to the Idaho DOT as part of the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) discretionary grant program. Federal officials said the project will generate safety benefits through an approximately 40 percent reduction in the likelihood of crashes.
