Willowbrook and Iona Street Water Line Project
ROAD CLOSURE & DETOUR:
Beginning Monday, May 23rd, 2017, TMC Contractors will be working on Iona Street and will be detouring traffic around the Iona from Bingham Avenue to Elmore Avenue. Simultaneously, the contractor will detour traffic on N Lee Avenue from Beacon Drive to Sunset Drive. The detours are expected to remain in place for at least one week. See maps of the traffic plans.

The City of Idaho Falls Street Division is working on removing asphalt on Dunbar Drive, Vine Avenue and E Shelly Street in preparation for the Willowbrook and Iona Street water line project. TMC Contractors will then reconstruct water lines beginning on May 1, followed by resurfacing. Once that section is complete, crews will move to Rose Avenue and Sunset Drive to remove asphalt, reconstruct water lines and resurface the roadway from N. Boulevard to N. Lee Street. On-street parking is prohibited in these areas for the duration of the project.  However, all residents will have access to their homes. Barring unforeseen conditions, the project duration is approximately 40 days. Please watch for equipment and workers, follow all traffic signs and flaggers, and reduce speeds to posted limits. For questions, call Public Works at (208) 612-8250.

17th Street and Hitt Road Intersection Improvements
HK Contractors began work on the reconstruction of the 17th Street and 25th East (Hitt Road) intersection Monday, April 10, 2017. The work on the intersection will include: increasing lanes to the existing intersection, installation of water, storm and sewer systems, sidewalk, traffic signals, lighting, new asphalt overlay, extruded curb and seal coat and milling existing asphalt. Construction work is currently planned to keep at least one lane of traffic open in each direction at the intersection. The contractor will be milling down the asphalt beginning the evening of Wednesday, May 10 through May 12. Barring unforeseen circumstances, all businesses will be accessible during the construction. However, short-duration closures of individual accesses will be needed. During all construction activities, watch for equipment and workers, follow all traffic signs and flaggers, and reduce speeds to posted limits. For questions, call Public Works at (208) 612-8250.

Flashing Stop Sign Installation
HK Contractors have completed installation of the flashing stop signs at Lomax Street at N. Fanning Avenue, N. Wabash Avenue and N. Freeman Avenue. Work continues on "F" Street at the side street approaches at Shoup Avenue, Park Avenue and Capital Avenue. The project also includes the removal of curb and gutter and installation of new ADA pedestrian ramps at the various intersection corners of both Lomax Street and "F" Street. Traffic will be reduced to one lane at various times for the duration of the project. The project is expected to be complete in May. During all construction activities, watch for equipment and workers, follow all traffic signs and flaggers, and reduce speeds to posted limits. For questions, call Public Works at (208) 612-8250.
