Signal light off Thursday night at Highway 44 and Fisher Park Way

August 21, 2013 

— A traffic light at the intersection of Idaho Highway 44 and Fisher Park Way will be turned off Thursday night and early Friday morning as part of the Linder Road improvement project, according to the Idaho Transportation Department.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane at various times between 9 p.m. Thursday and 5 a.m. Friday. Flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection. The signal will be turned back on Friday morning.

When the project is completed by early October, the intersection of Idaho 44 and Linder Road will have two through lanes in each direction on the highway. There will be double left-turn lanes on Linder Road and right-turn lanes on all four corners of the intersection.

In addition, Idaho 44 will be widened to five lanes from West State Street to just west of Linder Road.
