Valley Gutter Replacement to Temporarily Close Some Intersections

The City of Twin Falls is continuing precursory work for roadway rehabilitation projects by replacing deteriorating valley gutters.
 
Contractors with the City of Twin Falls will close the intersections at Crest Avenue and Eastland Drive North and at Maurice Street North and Filer Avenue East beginning Thursday, July 27. On Wednesday, Aug. 2, contractors will also close the intersection at Madrona Street and Bitterroot Drive. On Monday, Aug. 7, contractors will close the intersection at Filer Avenue East and Alturas Drive.  

Additionally, the intersections at Mountain View Drive and Bitterroot Drive, as well as Walnut Street North and Wilmore Avenue, are expected to be closed beginning Wednesday, Aug. 9. Each closure is anticipated to last 1 to 2 weeks.
 
All intersection closures will allow workers to safely and expeditiously pour and cure new valley gutters that help channel stormwater away from streets. The replacement of valley gutters is best completed prior to repaving streets, which were damaged by extreme weather conditions and are slated for rehabilitation this year. In April 2017, City Council authorized the use of street reserves to repair badly damaged roads caused by the extraordinary winter.  The new valley gutters will provide a smoother transition between streets.
 
Questions or concerns about the project should be directed to Josh Baird, City of Twin Falls Staff Engineer, at 208-735-7323 or jbaird@tfid.org
