[ARCHIVED] Good News! 1st Street Reopens TONIGHT!

Public Works Logo

The City of Idaho Falls Public Works Department is pleased to announce that 1st Street will reopen at 5:00 p.m. tonight - just in time for the evening commute.

The water line replacement project extended from Lomax Street to the Idaho Canal and included water line replacement, storm drain improvements and road reconstruction. Idaho Falls Power replaced aging street lights and Davey Tree Service trimmed trees away from power lines.

The roadway has been closed since July 8 to provide for a safe work environment for construction crews and to expedite the project.  

The project was completed on schedule. We thank the community for their patience as we improved the city’s aging infrastructure.
