[ARCHIVED] S Utah Avenue Road Closure (Aug 30-Aug 31)

Road Closed Sign

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes for a couple of days next week as construction crews temporarily close a section of S Utah Avenue to remove an unused railroad crossing.

In coordination with East Idaho Railroad (EIRR), the Idaho Falls Street Division will be removing the S Utah Avenue railroad crossing located just south of the intersection of S Utah Avenue and Broadway near the Idaho Falls Walmart. Traffic will be detoured to Capital Avenue. 


The work begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Barring unforeseen conditions, S Utah Avenue will reopen on Wednesday, Aug. 31.     

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 Street Division at (208) 612-8490.
