City Council Listens To Plans For Eastland Drive North
There may soon be a plan formulated to fix Eastland Drive North in Twin Falls. Motorists have been dodging potholes and a deteriorating road for some time as road crews struggle to keep the roadway as safe as possible. The Twin Falls City Council will hear plans tonight on how to fix one of the town’s main arteries. There are two plans to be considered. One would rebuild only the bad sections at a cost of $3.8 to $6-million dollars. The second plan would repave entire sections of the failing road at a cost of $4.3 to $6.6-million dollars. The repair of the roadway was not included in this year’s city budget so it would have to be amended and voted on by the City Council. The project would be funded by using reserve monies from other accounts. The City Council meeting will begin this afternoon at 5 o’clock in the City Council chambers.
