Work completed!

Thank you for your patience during this project. In November 2022, ITD opened the third southbound lane of Eagle Road between Franklin Road and Ustick Road to traffic. Additionally, a new traffic signal is in operation at Village Drive, providing motorists traveling southbound on Eagle Road a protected left turn onto Village Drive.

This project is funded through a Sales Tax Anticipation Revenue agreement with the developer of the Village at Meridian. The STAR agreement allows the developer to pay for roadway improvements now, and be reimbursed later via sales tax revenue generated by the development. This southbound widening is the third and final phase of the original STAR agreement to expand Eagle Road to accommodate economic and population growth in the area.

STAR Agreement signed between the developer, ITD, and ACHD. The agreement included three phases of roadway improvements.
