FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Signal at intersection of Idaho 44 and Park Lane will be turned off Thursday night

EAGLE – Crews will work overnight Thursday (May 9) on the traffic signal at Idaho 44 and Park Lane as part of the Idaho Transportation Department's highway improvement project from Linder Road to Ballantyne Lane.

The traffic signal will be turned off, and flaggers will direct vehicles through the intersection from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Traffic will be restricted to one lane occasionally during the night.

ITD asks motorists to slow down, use patience, pay attention in construction zones and help assure the safety of construction workers. Motorists can expect delays during construction. Plan extra travel time, and if possible, use an alternate route.

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

For more information about the project visit www.itd.idaho.gov and click on Projects at the top of the screen. On the Projects page, click on Southwest Idaho on the right-side menu, then scroll down to the header “Projects Under Construction/Beginning Soon” and click on State & Linder Design-Build.

To receive construction updates, send your email address to comments@itd.idaho.gov.

Highway construction is one of the key forces pushing Idaho toward full economic recovery by creating jobs, improving safety and reducing traffic congestion.
