Road Work In Twin Falls Should Last About A Week
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - Monday in Twin Falls, crews started the initial work on paving and seal-coating portions of Idaho Highway 74 at the U.S. 93 intersection.
Starting Monday and continuing all week crews will be working to pave and seal coat approximately 7 and a half miles of roadway, starting at the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and Idaho Highway 74.
On Monday crews started to tear up the road at that intersection and over the next few days will work down 74 along 3600 North and will finish up in Twin Falls at the intersection of Second Avenue South and Shoshone Street.
This project is part of a 1.26 million dollar district–wide paving and seal–coat project under contract with the Knife River Corporation out of Boise.
Nathan Jerke from the Idaho Transportation Department.
“The project all told should take about 5 days. They will come back and do the paving in the next day or so. Then they’ll come back right away and begin with the seal-coat project and they should continue the sweeping and striping should be completed by the end of the weekend, early next week at the latest.”
The ITD is asking all drivers to be prepared for lane restrictions in all of the four–lane sections of the roadway and delays up to 15 minutes in the two–lane sections.
Drivers are also urged to use caution in all areas being seal–coated due to the use of loose gravel involved in the process.
