Statesman staffSeptember 4, 2013 

As crews work overnight on the traffic signal on Thursday at the intersection of Idaho 44 and Linder Road, the signal will be turned off from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane at various times during the night, and flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection.

The signal will be operating again Friday morning, ITD said.

This won't be the only nighttime activity on Idaho 44 in the near future.

The final paving of Idaho 44 is set to begin the night of Sunday, Sept. 8. Nighttime paving will continue through Saturday, Sept. 14, and ITD said drivers should expect nighttime flagging, traffic shifts and intermittent lane closures on Idaho 44 between West State Street and Linder Road.

The work is part of ITD’s improvement project on Idaho 44 between Linder Road and Ballantyne Lane.
