The City of Twin Falls is taking additional precautions to clear and maintain city streets during the winter season, and it’s asking for the public’s help to ensure that street crews can safely clear streets when significant snow or precipitation arrives.
The city has six snowplows and sanders to maintain more than 640 lane-miles of streets, which are cleared of snow and ice before being dusted with a mix of sand and de-icing agent. Additionally, city street crews apply salt brine in before snowfall to prevent ice accumulation on the roadway.
Roadways are plowed and sanded in order of priority. For example, main arterial roadways such as Blue Lakes Boulevard, Eastland Avenue, Washington Street, Addison Avenue, Kimberly Road and Pole Line Road are higher priority because they support higher traffic counts and provide critical access for emergency vehicles.
Streets with smaller traffic counts are cleared and sanded after priority roads have been completed. However, the city does not normally plow residential streets because residents’ may park along the street makes it too narrow for the plow trucks to operate safely. But the city will apply salt and sand on intersections at residential intersections.
Please remember the following while driving this winter:
In the event of significant snowfall, the City of Twin Falls encourages the following:
Please call the City of Twin Falls non-emergency dispatch line at 208-735-4357 to report dangerous conditions on roads or intersections. City street workers or officers with the Twin Falls Police Department will evaluate the roadway and dispatch plows and sanders when needed.
