Wednesday traffic alert: Lane restrictions on Linder Road

Statesman staffJuly 30, 2013 

The Idaho Transportation Department is advising drivers that they can expect traffic flow to be affected Wednesday on a stretch of Linder Road in Eagle as crews perform paving work at a busy intersection.

Flaggers will direct traffic on Linder north and south of its intersection with Idaho 44 (State Street) while work is being performed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. ITD officials said traffic will be reduced to one lane intermittently throughout the day.

The paving is part of a larger Idaho 44 improvement project from Linder to Ballantyne Lane. The Idaho 44/Linder intersection is being rebuilt, and Idaho 44 will be widened to five lanes.

Drivers are asked to slow down and be aware of the safety of construction workers. Delays can be expected, and drivers are asked to find alternate routes when possible.
