Several Streets Slated for Resurfacing in September; Projects Mostly Complete Winter Damage Repairs

Residents and visitors in Twin Falls should expect intermittent traffic restrictions and lane closures beginning Thursday, Sept. 7, as the City of Twin Falls will continue resurfacing roads that were badly damaged by significant freezing and thawing during the most recent winter.

Idaho Materials Construction will intermittently close or restrict traffic at the following locations:

  • Grandview Drive North from Cheney Drive West to Pole Line Road
  • Filer Avenue East from Elm Street North to Sunrise Boulevard North
  • Falls Avenue East from Blue Lakes Boulevard North to Eastland Drive North
  • Locust Street North from Falls Avenue East to Wilmore Avenue
  • Bridgeview Boulevard from Blue Lakes Boulevard North southeast to the bend; and Bridgeview Boulevard from south of Pole Line Road to Locust Street North.

Milling operations are expected to begin Sept. 7 at Grandview Drive North and paving operations are anticipated to begin Monday, Sept. 11. The paving portion of the project should be completed by Monday, Oct. 2. Local and business access will be maintained and contractors will avoid peak traffic congestion when working near Sawtooth Elementary and Twin Falls High Schools.
 
Additional minor work will continue into mid-October to raise water valves and sewer manholes that were lowered prior to milling operations.

The project will complete a majority of the work that began in April to repair roads that were damaged by significant winter conditions.
 
The City of Twin Falls is asking residents to be patient and considerate during the project. Questions or concerns about the project should be directed to Josh Baird, City of Twin Falls Staff Engineer, at 208-735-7323 or jbaird@tfid.org
