Background

Eagle Road is one of the busiest highways in Idaho and a major commuter route in the Treasure Valley. Within the next 20 years, traffic on Eagle Road is projected to double from approximately 40,000 to over 80,000 vehicles per day. When complete, this project will help relieve congestion, increase capacity and enhance safety on this important corridor.
