Eagle Road has been closed near the Village at Meridian after a pipe bust Monday night, and The Idaho Transportation Department says they plan to re-open the section in time for Thursday's morning commute.

Final paving and striping is expected to wrap up around 10:00 p.m. tonight.

This section of Eagle Road sees 49,000 trips on average. Combined with the nearby traffic on Fairview Ave., this intersection is the busiest in Idaho with an average 76,000 daily trips.

The road was partially open Tuesday night into Wednesday to alleviate congestion. It was closed again later at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Meridian Public Works, the Meridian Police Department, Ada County Highway District, and ITD partnered together to fix the pipe, patch the road, and safely divert traffic during the time of the incident.
