Idaho Falls, ID – The City of Idaho Falls has completed snow removal activities associated with the recent winter weather event.  As a result, the parking restrictions have been lifted, effective immediately. Crews will continue clean up in certain areas during regular shifts.  

The Public Works Department and the Idaho Falls Police Department would like to thank residents and the traveling public for their cooperation during this process.

“Remember that when it snows 2 inches or more to seek additional information about snow removal operations and possible parking restrictions, either through local media or the city’s notification systems,” states Public Information Officer Kerry Hammon.

Information can be found by tuning into local media outlets; going to the homepage of the city’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages; and/or subscribing to the city’s email Notify Me system found on the city’s website. Another great way to stay informed is by subscribing to text alerts; simply text ifalerts (one word, plural) to 91011.

Snow Removal by the Numbers:

  • Priority 1 Streets: 226 lane miles
  • Priority 2 Streets: 89 lane miles
  • Priority 3 Streets: 398 lane miles
  • As a result of parking restrictions, 85 vehicles were towed on Saturday while approximately 160 vehicles were towed today.  This is in comparison to 400 vehicles towed in a two-day period during the previous snow removal operations.
  • Two (2) electronic message boards were added at major intersections around Zone A to aid in public notification.
