Section of Filer Avenue to Close for Waterline and Road Replacement

Contractors with the City of Twin Falls will close the eastbound lane of Filer Avenue between Madrona Street and Sunrise Boulevard beginning Wednesday, May 3 through Saturday, July 15. The closure will allow contractors to safely replace a deteriorating waterline, and rebuild the roadway that was damaged by severe winter weather conditions.

The westbound lane will remain open to vehicle traffic and contractors will ensure access to all local traffic for the duration of the project. If possible, drivers are encouraged to use Stadium Boulevard or Heyburn Avenue as alternate routes around the project.

Aside from replacing the deteriorating waterline, contractors will also replace the full-depth of roadway, which was one of many streets damaged by significant precipitation and freezing temperatures this winter. The City of Twin Falls set aside $4.4 million to reconstruct streets that were damaged by severe winter weather conditions.

For more information about the project, please contact the City of Twin Falls Public Works Department at 208-736-2275.
