4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS CELEBRATION - ROAD CLOSURES
TUESDAY - JULY 4, 2017
The annual Independence Day fireworks display celebration will once again be held at the College of Southern Idaho on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. The fireworks display should begin at dark near 10:00 p.m. and should last approximately 20 minutes. Due to the large amount of vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the area, the Twin Falls Police Department asks the following:
- Please plan on arriving early. The Police Department will close down those sections of Falls Avenue, Washington Street North, North College Road and Cheney Dr, which surround the college at 9:00 p.m. The road closures are done to insure the safety of pedestrians in the area.
- Please be patient. Several thousand people routinely attend the display it may take several minutes for the police to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic off the CSI campus safely. Be aware that some entry points into CSI will be closed to exiting traffic. We will post signs indicating which points will be closed. In addition, you may be routed in a different direction than you would normally travel to your home. Please plan on the delay and understand that safety is our primary concern.
- During previous displays, traffic collisions have occurred as a result of impaired drivers. The area surrounding CSI will be heavily patrolled and all drivers suspected of DUI will be arrested. Please use common sense and do not drink and drive.
- Be aware that no personal fireworks will be allowed in or around the CSI area during the closure.
If any questions arise regarding this event, please contact Sergeant Ryan Howe at 735-4357.
