Main Avenue and Hansen Street to Be All-way Stop Starting Oct. 5

Main Avenue and Hansen Street

Starting Thursday, Oct. 5, the intersection of Hansen Street East and Main Avenue East at the Downtown Twin Falls Commons will be changed to an all-way stop. The intersection is currently two-way stop on Hansen Street.

Because of the increased traffic and pedestrian volume at the intersection, the City of Twin Falls determined that a multiway stop and stop bars on all approaches will increase safety. Safety concerns associated with multiway stops include pedestrians, bicyclists and other users expecting drivers to stop.

The City reminds drivers that an all-way stop requires vehicles on every approach to stop at the intersection before proceeding. Drivers must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk.
