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 section of Eagle Road will close Saturday, May 21 from 10 p.m. until 10 a.m. May 22 so that Boise Valley Railroad can complete 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.

“Details of that route will be released in the coming days,” Gonzalez stated.

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

Local business access will be maintained.
