Repaving of Eagle Road resumes this month; nightly detours begin Monday, April 17

Eagle Road Repaving Project

The Idaho Transportation Department will resume repaving work on Eagle Road this month between Interstate 84 and State Highway 44. Portions of Eagle Road will be detoured at night starting Monday, April 17. All work is weather dependent.
This year, crews will repair the road surface on Eagle Road and several intersections between I-84 and SH-44, including McMillan Road, Ustick Road, and Fairview Avenue. This is the second season of a two-year project.

During the week of April 10, crews will begin preparation work and one lane will be closed on Eagle Road at night. Starting April 17, all lanes of Eagle Road will be detoured each night where crews are working.

Between Franklin Rd. and Chinden Blvd.:

  • Traffic will be detoured to Locust Grove Road or Cloverdale Road

Between Chinden Blvd. and SH-44:

  • Traffic will be shifted to one side of Eagle Road

At the McMillan, Ustick, and Fairview Intersections:

  • Traffic will be detoured to Locust Grove Road or Cloverdale Road

Overnight closures and detours will begin at 10 p.m. and end at 6 a.m. on weekdays. Weekend opening times will vary between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. depending on traffic volumes. All lanes will be open during the day. For the latest closure information, text EagleRoad to 1-866-483-8422 or visit

“We have a lot of ground to cover this construction season, so we ask that drivers slow down and be cautious where crews are working,” said Jeff Ryan, ITD Design/Construction Engineer. “Nighttime closures will help keep crews safe and keep all lanes open during the daytime commute.”

Temporary steel plates will be placed on Eagle Road to cover manholes until the project is complete. Please drive with caution.

Last season, crews repaved the roadway near I-84 and Island Woods Drive. All construction is expected to be completed in fall 2023.

Idaho Materials & Construction is the contractor for this $18 million project.
