New Road off Highway 44 Complete

A new road into downtown Eagle is now open, paving the way for a large mixed-use development.

Last month, the Eagle Urban Renewal Agency completed construction on the Palmetto Drive Extension. The short new stretch of road creates a route from Highway 44 headed north toward downtown Eagle on old State Street. The project, funded half by the URA and half by developer Eagle 26 LLC, could take roughly 11% of traffic off of the intersection between Eagle Road and Highway 44, according to Eagle URA Board Chair Janet Buschert.

“It’s been in the top one or two spots for our priority list so it feels really good to get this one done and be able to move on to some other stuff,” Buschert said.

Buschert expects the access road will help development in the area because of the added connectivity. She also estimated it will improve response times to parts of Eagle because of the location of a fire station in the area.
