Idaho Transportation Department crews will be rebuilding the Eagle Road and Chinden Boulevard intersection over the next couple months.
Part of the project calls for eliminating the free-running right-turn lanes at the northeast and southeast corners of this intersection and adding raised medians on Chinden east of the intersection and on Eagle south of the intersection.
Starting Wednesday, the northeast corner right-turn lane on Eagle Road and Chinden Boulevard will be closed.
The southeast corner right-turn lane will be closed later this month.
The elimination of free-running right turn lanes is a safety measure, according to ITD.
Free-running rights were eliminated at the intersection of Eagle and Fairview in July.
Crews also will continue to work on repaving the southbound lanes of Eagle from River Valley Street to Chinden. One southbound lane on Eagle from River Valley to Hobble Creek will be closed at night so crews can pave the final layer of asphalt on the roadway. One lane will remain open in each direction between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
At nighttime only, access will be limited to neighborhoods and businesses along Eagle Road between River Valley Street and Hobble Creek. There will be approximately 15-minute delays at both the Ustick Road and McMillan Road intersections.
Crews will finish paving this southbound section of Eagle by Sept. 27.
