Paving to limit access, cause delays for Eagle Road drivers
One northbound lane on Eagle Road from River Valley Street to Hobble Creek (in the approximate vicinity of Fairview Avenue to Chinden Boulevard) will be closed at night so crews can pave the roadway, according to an Idaho Transportation Department news release.
Crews started work Tuesday night. They will finish paving the section of Eagle Road by late September.
Between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. one lane will remain open in each direction.
Access will be limited to neighborhoods and businesses along Eagle Road between River Valley Street and Hobble Creek at nighttime, said ITD spokesman Reed Hollinshead. There will be approximately fifteen-minute delays at both the Ustick Road and McMillan Road intersections.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes to avoid Eagle Road during the nighttime lane closures. Flaggers will direct traffic and help drivers find alternate routes to their homes and businesses.
ITD asks travelers to plan ahead during construction, pay attention in construction zones, and be aware of the safety of construction workers.
When complete, the improvements will preserve the surface of Eagle Road, relieve congestion, and improve safety on this important corridor.
