Road Work Delayed By Weather
If you’re getting impatient with all the road construction going on in the Twin Falls area you can blame the weather for part of it. Nathan Jerke with the Idaho Transportation Department says some of the road projects would have been completed by now had it not been for all the rain this spring. Washington Street North was expected to be completed by early July but because of all the rain that project is now expected for completion by late July. The arsenic road project on Blue Lakes Blvd. South and Washington St. South have also been delayed by the wet spring. Both projects would probably have been completed by now if the spring had been a normal one but with all the moisture we’ve had the completion date is still not determined. The rain has prevented the roads from being paved. Still coming up this summer are the installation of a stop light at the Jerome Golf Course Road and Highway 93 intersection…work on Eastland Drive and chip sealing many of the areas roadways besides the projects already underway.
