The City of Twin Falls is inviting stakeholders to participate in a public work session from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23 at Twin Falls City Hall. The work session will provide an opportunity for stakeholders and members of the project team to determine a reconstruction process with the least impact on visitors and stakeholders who use the Canyon Springs Grade.
The work session will be in the City Council Overflow room on the first-floor of Twin Falls City Hall located at 203 Main Avenue East. Project engineers will present the scope of the project to the public, and allow for public input on the process before advertising the project for bids.
The public is encouraged to attend and learn more about the $1.7 million reconstruction project. In 2016, the Canyon Springs Grade Citizen Advisory Committee was appointed by the City Council to gather public input and recommend potential solutions. In January 2017, Twin Falls City Council was presented with nine feasible options to reconstruct the Canyon Springs Grade that will make it safer for pedestrians and motorists. Council selected an option that included reconstruction and minor widening of the existing grade, as well as the addition of anchors and steel mesh to contain falling rock.
The work session will present the proposed design for the Canyon Springs Grade; provide details about construction activities; explain and discuss potential construction processes; and review the schedule and duration of the reconstruction project.
Questions regarding the work session or the Canyon Springs Grade Reconstruction Project should be directed to Troy Vitek, Assistant City Engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org 208-735-7256
