Intersection at Karcher and Middleton in Nampa to close overnight Friday

The busy Nampa intersection of Idaho 55/ Karcher Road and Middleton Road will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday for road-paving.

Eastbound Karcher Road traffic will be diverted north onto Midway Road to Homedale Road to Caldwell Boulevard. Northbound Middleton Road traffic will be detoured west onto Dale Lane to Midway Road to Homedale Road to Caldwell Boulevard.

Westbound Karcher traffic will be diverted onto Caldwell Boulevard to Homedale Road to Midway Road and back to Karcher Road. Flaggers will assist drivers at the intersections of Homedale and Midway roads and Midway and Karcher roads.

Signs will provide detour information for residents in the project area. Drivers should anticipate delays and are encouraged to leave early and slow down.

ITD and the city of Nampa have partnered to rebuild the intersection, which is used by about 30,000 vehicles each day. Construction is anticipated to conclude in fall 2015.
