Overland Road will be closed overnight at Idaho Highway 69 (aka Meridian Road) during the nights of Sept. 11-16, while the Idaho Transportation Department repaves the intersection.

The work is part of a series of safety improvements and pavement maintenance on Idaho Highway 69, according to the Idaho Transportation Department.

“During overnight paving, drivers on Overland Road will be detoured around the closure from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The detour route will use Locust Grove and South Stoddard Roads,” said ITD spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez. “One lane of Meridian Road will be open in both directions and flaggers will direct traffic as needed. All lanes will be open during the day.”

Construction on Highway 69 is expected to be completed by late September, she said.
