Repairs to the railroad crossing on Eagle Road between Pine Avenue and Franklin Road are scheduled to take place Saturday, May 21, through Sunday morning, May 22.

“A segment of Eagle Road will close Saturday from 10 p.m. until 10 a.m. Sunday as Boise Valley Railroad completes repairs on the tracks,” said Idaho Transportation Department spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez.

A detour will be in place during the closure between Pine Avenue and Franklin Road.

“Posted signs will direct drivers through the detour route on Franklin Road, onto Locust Grove and Pine Avenue around the work zone,” Gonzalez said.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible, as the detour route will likely be congested.

Local business access will be maintained.
