Construction continues at Exit 90

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Construction on the interstate exit northwest of Mountain Home will move to the westbound on- and off-ramps starting Monday.

Crews will work during the day to rebuild the Exit 90 ramps, and the traveling public is advised to use caution while driving in the project zone, officials with the Idaho Transportation Department said.

Construction on this section is expected to last three weeks. During this time, vehicles wider than 11 feet are not allowed on either ramp, and any vehicle longer than 20 feet are not allowed on the westbound off-ramp.

This restriction likely applies to pickup trucks towing trailers, officials said. Detours will be in place, and all truck drivers are advised to use Exit 95. The speed limit in the area will also drop to 45 miles per hour.

The $2.4 million project represents the next phase of an effort to rebuild the ramps along with a roughly one-mile stretch of the interstate business loop, commonly known as Old Highway 30.
