[ARCHIVED] Water service repair on Lomax Avenue on Aug 2

Water Line Repair

Motorists should expect minor traffic delays as the Idaho Falls Water Division repairs a leaking waterline on Lomax Avenue beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 2. 

If there are no unforeseen issues, the repairs will be done by the evening commute. However, there is the potential that the work could impact the evening commute. Motorists are advised to plan alternate routes.    

The location of the waterline repair is immediately west of the intersection of Lomax Avenue and Wabash Avenue.  Westbound traffic will be reduced to a single lane and detoured around the construction site through E 1st Street and N Fanning Avenue.

Water service interruption is expected to be limited to a single location, and that location will be notified prior to any disruption in service. 

Please reduce speeds, obey posted traffic control signage, and watch for construction crews near all work zones. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we repair the leak as quickly as possible.  

For questions or concerns, contact the Idaho Falls Water Division at (208) 612-8471.
