[ARCHIVED] Expect Delays at Intersections Scheduled for Traffic Signal Upgrades

Blue Lakes and Poleline

The City of Twin Falls will be connecting battery backup systems to traffic signals at critical intersections beginning Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 10.

Installing battery back-up systems, or Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), at critical intersections will keep local traffic moving during unscheduled power outages. The UPS system is low-maintenance and can be retrofitted for the city’s existing traffic signals.

The battery back-up systems will be connected at the following intersections: 

Kimberly Road and Eastland Drive

Blue Lakes Blvd. and Poleline Road

Blue Lakes Blvd. and Falls Avenue

Blue Lakes Blvd. and Addison Avenue

Washington Street and Addison Avenue

Washington Street and Poleline Road

Washington Street and Falls Avenue

Shoshone Street and Minidoka Avenue

Traffic signals at each intersection will be powered down for approximately 20 minutes while crews connect UPS systems. Twin Falls Police Officers will direct traffic at the intersections during while the signals are powered down.

During installation, drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes to avoid the intersections – if possible. Drivers should expect delays at the effected intersections.
