Associated Press

EAGLE, Idaho – As water levels continue to rise in the Boise River, a temporary levee will be guilty to prevent some potential flooding.

Las week, Corps officials examined potential hazards along the south channel of Eagle Island. The levee will run 4,300 feet along the embankment.

The mayor of Eagle has announced that all Greenbelt pathways and trails along the river banks in Eagle are closed until further notice.
