Idaho overpass damaged in crash set to open

June 8, 2019

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho transportation officials say commuters will again be able to use an overpass that’s been closed since a deadly crash last year on Interstate 84.

KTVB-TV reports the Cloverdale Road overpass was severely damaged in the June 2018 crash that occurred below it.

Three airmen from Mountain Home Air Force Base and a tractor-trailer driver were killed in the crash.

The overpass was demolished earlier this year to make way for a larger replacement.

Idaho Transportation Department spokesman Jake Melder says officials plan to open up a lane in each direction on June 15.

Completion of the overpass is slated for September.
