FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Overnight work requires flagging on Idaho 44 at Linder and Park intersections tonight, tomorrow

EAGLE – During the next two nights, crews working on the Idaho Transportation Department's Idaho 44 improvements at Linder Road and at Park Lane will be flagging drivers through those intersections.

The signals at the intersection of Idaho 44 and Linder Road will be turned off tonight (Tuesday, April 30) while crews pave the intersection. Flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction at Idaho 44 and Linder Road at various times during the night.

On Wednesday night (May 1), flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection of Park Lane and Idaho 44, so that crews may install new signal mast arms. The work will begin at 7 p.m. and be completed by 5 a.m., with the signals back in operation during the day.

Drivers are asked to slow down, pay attention in construction zones and be aware of the safety of construction workers. Motorists can expect delays during construction. They are encouraged to plan extra time for trips and, if possible, find an alternate route. Patience is appreciated as ITD works on these improvements.

Over the next several months, crews will be rebuilding the Idaho 44/Linder Road intersection and widening Idaho 44 to five lanes. Construction is expected to be completed by this fall.
