Eagle Road Pavement Repairs

The pavement is deteriorating and needs to be repaired

The pavement of Eagle Road (Idaho Highway 55) between I-84 and Idaho 44 is deteriorating, resulting in shallow potholes throughout the corridor.

The Department is preparing a comprehensive pavement rehabilitation project for 2022 and 2023. The rehabilitation project will involve removing the old, damaged pavement and placing new asphalt to provide a smooth driving surface.

Repair Travel Impacts

Short-term repairs will be designed to improve the pavement’s smoothness and reduce further damage. It will require crews to close a single lane of travel to create a safe work zone. The existing damaged pavement will be milled out in narrow strips and filled with a hot asphalt patch. This can only be done when temperatures are warm and conditions are dry.

Travel Impacts:

  • Work completed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Single lane closure
  • Rolling work zone

Deteriorating Pavement

Cores of the pavement on Eagle Road revealed delamination of years-old pavement layers. Water infiltrating the surface filled these voids. A combination of hydraulic pressure and, during cold snaps, expansion from freezing expands these voids until eventually the surface gives way, creating a pot hole.
