Paving, Seal-Coat Project On Idaho 74 In Twin Falls County Starts Next Week
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Drivers will need to be prepared for delays and loose gravel on Idaho 74 in the southern part of town next week with a paving and seal-coat project throughout the 7.8 mile roadway, the Idaho Transportation Department announced. Work should be complete by the end of the week.
Crews will begin on the project with a minor paving to repair rutting and deficient pavement at the U.S. 93/Idaho 74 junction, southwest of Twin Falls. The paving is expected to begin on Tuesday (July 10) and take one day. Beginning Wednesday (July 11) crews will begin seal coating from the U.S. 93 junction to the intersection of Second Avenue South and Shoshone Street
Idaho 74, which begins at U.S. 93 southwest of Twin Falls and enters town on South Washington Street and Shoshone Street before ending at Second Avenue North, is part of a $1.26 million district-wide paving and seal-coat project under contract with Knife River Corporation of Boise.
Drivers should be prepared for lane restrictions in four-lane sections of roadway and delays of up to 15 minutes in two-lane sections. The work zone will be managed with flaggers and a pilot car.
Drivers are urged to use caution in all areas of seal coating. Observing posted speed limits and increasing the distance between vehicles will reduce the risk of windshield damage caused by loose gravel.
