Traffic light on Highway 44 to go dark overnight

EAGLE, Idaho (KBOI) - On Thursday, the traffic light at Highway 44 and Park Lane will be turned off.

This work is part of Idaho Transportation Department's highway improvement project from Linder Road to Ballantyne Lane. Flaggers will direct traffic through the construction zone from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Drivers should remember to slow down, pay attention in construction zones and be aware of the safety of construction workers. Motorists can expect delays during construction. Plan extra time for trips and, if possible, find an alternate route.

Over the next several months, crews will be rebuilding the Highway 44/Linder Road intersection and widening the highway to five lanes. Construction is expected to be completed by this fall.
