Eagle Road Pavement Repairs

Construction has started!

The pavement of Eagle Road (State Highway 55) between I-84 and State highway 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.

• Work at intersections (McMillian, Ustick, Fairview and Franklin) will require detours.
• Motorists will be detoured to either Locust Grove Road or Cloverdale Road.
• Nighttime closures will begin at 10 p.m. and end at 6 a.m. on weekdays. Weekend opening times will vary between 6 and 9 a.m.
• Steel plates will be placed along Eagle Road to cover manholes. Please drive with caution.

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.
