Seal Coat On Kimberly Road Begins Thursday
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Drivers on Kimberly Road in Twin Falls will want to use caution as the ITD will be seal coating between Eastland Drive and 3400 East Road starting Thursday.
The work is the last piece of a district-wide sealcoat contract delayed due to city utility work during the past year.
A properly applied seal coat can add several years of service to the roadway by preserving the integrity of the asphalt and serves as a barrier to water and cracking. The surface also improves winter safety by adding roughness for traction on snow and ice.
When crews are present, the road will be reduced to one lane in each direction and a 35 mph speed limit will be in effect. Work is expected to be completed by Sunday with final sweeping and striping.
Drivers are urged to use caution in all areas of seal coating.
Observing posted speed limits and increasing following distance between vehicles will reduce the risk of windshield damage caused by loose gravel.
