Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - If you live in the south–east corner Twin Falls you can expect some minor road delays along Kimberly Road over the next few months.
Starting this week road crews from the City of Twin Falls have begun the process of installing a new 24 inch water line
underneath Kimberly road.
The new line will go to help better the water services to the new east side industrial zone of town.
With new industry such as Chobani moving into the area, the city knew that the old 12 inch pipe would not have been enough to support such a large companies needs.
“The traffic on Kimberly Road right now has been reduced to one lane, eastbound, it should hold for the next couple of months while they are installing the water line. And then they finish up with that piece they will temporarily patch it with asphalt for the winter time and hopefully re-open it for the duration of the winter.” Said Lee Glaseman for the City of Twin Falls.
Work on this section of the project is scheduled to last about a month.
After the winter season, the entire project should be completed no later than May of next year.
