Street Paving and Signal Battery Projects Continue in Twin Falls
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-Crews are scheduled for several projects next week across the city of Twin Falls that include street paving and battery backup installation for traffic lights.
Beginning Monday, April 6, city crews will start connecting back-up battery systems to a number of traffic lights throughout the city at critical intersections.

Here is a list of lights set to get the UPS systems:
Kimberly Road and Eastland Drive
Blue Lakes Blvd. and Poleline Road
