The Idaho Transportation Department says it’ll suspend roadwork statewide that impacts travelers to ease the way for motorists over the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend, with one exception: The Gowen Road interchange project just east of Boise. Work being done there will not impede traffic, ITD says. “Contractors have no interest in working over the holiday, just like most of us,” said ITD Chief Operations Officer Jim Carpenter. “Most would take these days off anyway, even if it was not required.”
The closure for the holiday will be from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.
