The Idaho Transportation Department asks motorists to plan for intermittent overnight delays as construction continues to widen Eagle Road (State Highway 55) between Franklin Road and Ustick Road in Meridian. The project will increase mobility by adding a third southbound lane along this 1.6-mile segment.
Over the next few weeks, crews will be working to construct new signal and power poles at the intersections of Franklin Road, Pine Avenue, Fairview Avenue, and River Valley Street. This work will intermittently impact traffic during the nighttime hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Drivers should expect up to 15-minute delays and possible lane closures when traveling through the work zone. Check Idaho 511 for the current work schedule and consider using an alternate route.
