In conjunction with the Idaho Transportation Department, the Idaho Falls Water Division will be closing the southbound lanes of Yellowstone, south of Sunnyside Road at the intersection, beginning tonight, Sept. 19.
Significant impacts to traffic are anticipated. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes this week.
The lane closures are necessary to patch concrete following a water leak. Barring unforeseen conditions, the repair should be completed by the evening of Friday, Sept. 22.
During repairs, southbound traffic will be moved to the northbound left turn bay. Motorists traveling northbound on Yellowstone, turning left toward I15, will be detoured. Motorists traveling eastbound on Sunnyside Road, turning south on Yellowstone, will also be detoured.
Please reduce speeds, obey posted traffic control signage, and watch for construction crews throughout the work zone. For questions or concerns about this project, contact the Idaho Transportation Department at (208) 745-7781.
To review all construction projects within the city of Idaho Falls limits go to the Interactive Construction Map. Although Yellowstone and Broadway run through Idaho Falls, they are state highways that are maintained by ITD. To review ITD projects, click HERE.
