The Idaho Transportation Department started construction Aug. 23 on a third northbound lane for Eagle Road from Franklin Road to Fairview Avenue, the department reported.
The work will extend the three-lane northbound stretch already in place from Interstate 84 to just before Franklin, where the outer lane becomes a dedicated right-turn lane.
Eagle Road will remain open at all times with lane restrictions during the overnight road work from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year, ITD spokeswoman Jennifer Gonzalez said.
The project will also add right-turn lanes on northbound Eagle at Franklin Road, Pine Avenue, Fairview Avenue, Lanark Drive and Presidential Drive. The project is funded by The Village at Meridian, she said.
Idaho Materials & Construction is the contractor for the project. Construction updates can be obtained by texting EAGLEROAD to 22828 or calling 334-8938.
