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. The rehabilitation project will involved milling out 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.

Pancake Potholes Patched

ITD maintenance crews used a fix called Durapatch to fill in the shallow potholes. These patches may not hold up to traffic long, and new potholes may form. Maintenance crews will constantly monitor and respond to additional pavement damage.
