The City of Twin Falls will install lane-separation posts and curbing on Addison Avenue, east of the intersection with Sunrise Boulevard, beginning Monday, Aug. 15. The lane-separation post are intended to prevent drivers from attempting to turn from the northbound turn-lane on Addison Avenue into the Smith’s parking lot — an illegal turn that has resulted in head-on collisions at the intersection.
This will be the first time the City has used lane-separation posts and curbing, which attaches a polymer base curb and detachable posts to the striping on the roadway. The posts and curbing are more visible to drivers, and can slow a vehicle making an illegal turn. The posts are detachable so they can be easily replaced when needed. The polymer posts and curbing have been widely used in other cities for several years, and are a more cost-efficient traffic control than cement curbing or posts.
Please slow down and yield to work crews installing the lane-separation posts.
