Early work begins on new Eagle Road signal

May 7, 2013 

The new signal at Eagle and Wainwright Drive is intended to improve traffic flow and help reduce delays between Interstate 84 and Idaho Highway 44, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. It is expected to be in operation by mid-July.

Preliminary work at the intersection will begin this week, according to ITD. Crews will start to install the signal Monday, May 13; that work will last through early July.

Construction will take place at night, closing one lane of Eagle in each direction from 9 p.m.-5 a.m. on weekdays and from 9 p.m.-8 a.m. on weekends. All lanes of Eagle will remain open during the day.

ITD asks that drivers slow down, pay attention in construction zones and keep the safety of construction workers in mind.
