EAGLE, Idaho — The Idaho Transportation Department is gearing up to start work on a new half continuous flow intersection this week to connect ID-44 and Eagle Road.
ITD says more than 70,000 vehicles travel through the intersection every day, and the new intersection will improve safety and reduce congestion in the area.
“The new design does require drivers to pay attention and think ahead, especially on Idaho Highway 44,” said Tyler Coy, ITD Project Manager. “I encourage everyone to learn more about how it works by watching the video during and after construction. When we’re done, there will be overhead signs guiding traffic to the right place. It’s really important people drive attentively.”
Most of the work will take place overnight between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., but some daytime work is expected. It's scheduled to wrap up in fall 2021.
Motorists are encouraged to slow down and pay attention when traveling in the work zone.
