Eagle Road Pavement Repairs

Construction has paused for winter!

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

ITD will continue resurfacing the road in 2023. The rehabilitation project will involve removing the old, damaged pavement and placing new asphalt to provide a smooth driving surface.

Changes to Season 1 Construction

The Idaho Transportation Department changed locations this construction season on the Eagle Road Repaving project.

Instead of paving the intersections of McMillan, Ustick, and Fairview in fall 2022, ITD repaved Eagle Road between the South Channel Bridge of the Boise River and Island Woods Drive.

The pavement had deteriorated and needed to be replaced during the first construction season of this project.

What to Expect During Construction

  • All lanes will be open during the day.
  • One lane will be open in each direction with reduced speed limits at night.
  • Work at intersections (McMillan, 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 pothole.
