Idaho Transportation Deparment has opened both westbound and eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 from mileposts 95 to 137 with some lane restrictions in place westbound between mileposts 115 to 120. Westbound lanes will be restricted from mileposts 115 to 120, throughout the evening and into the night, as tow trucks continue to work on removing semi-trucks involved in the series of crashes throughout the day.

Motorists are urged to proceed with extreme caution as roadways are still slick, crews and equipment are still working along the road, and there is reduced visibility due to fog in the area.


Idaho Transportion Department has completely opened the east bound lanes of Interstate 84. West bound between mile post 95 to 137 is still blocked at this time.


Idaho Transportion has now extended the closure on Interstate 84 for both east and west from milepost 137 to milepost 54 due to hazardous conditions. Unknown when the roads will be reopened.


I84 is closed both east and west from milepost 121 to 54 due to hazardous road conditions and multiple crashes. Motorists are being turned around westbound at milepost 137 due to crashes in the area.

There is no estimate at this time as to when the road will be reopen for travel. Motorists can check, 511 from a cell phone, or call 1-888-432-7623 for the latest closure information from Idaho Transportation Department.
