Three traffic signals along Idaho 44 between Linder Road and West State Street (near Ballantyne Lane) will be deactivated the night of Thursday, June 27, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

The signals are at the Linder Road, Park Lane and Fisher Park Way intersections. Flaggers will direct traffic through the intersections from 9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday.

Also, the east- and westbound lanes of Idaho 44 will shift to the north side of the highway Thursday night as crews rebuild the south side. The traffic shift will last through September.

In another traffic shift, Idaho 44 traffic near the intersection with Idaho 16 will shift to temporary paving on the south highway shoulder after the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Traffic will be reduced from three lanes to two as crews rebuild this section to prepare for the Idaho 16 realignment and extension. The speed limit is 45 mph through the Idaho 16 construction zones.
