The City of Twin Falls has closed Shoshone Street between Sixth Avenue West and South Park Avenue West due to a waterline break that occurred during the early morning on Sunday, Feb. 14. Vehicle traffic is currently being detoured around the Shoshone Street bridge at Maxwell Avenue and South Park Avenue because the roadway is unsafe for vehicles.
North-south traffic is asked to use the bridges at Blue Lakes Boulevard South or Victory Avenue until access can be reopened to the Shoshone Street bridge at Maxwell Avenue. Due to the extent of the damage to the waterline and roadway, repairs are expected to be completed within two to three days.
Crews are on site and making repairs to the waterline, and the public is asked to avoid the area if possible.
