TelAve News/10831940
IDAHO FALLS ~ Idaho Falls - The city's Street Division has announced that crews will soon begin work to remove an unused railroad crossing across Yellowstone Highway and its intersection with Cliff and Maple Streets. The project is expected to start on Monday, June 17 and will take approximately two weeks to complete.

To ensure the safety of both workers and drivers, Yellowstone Highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction during construction. Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes and reduce their speeds while driving through the work zone. They are also reminded to obey all posted traffic control signage and watch out for construction workers.

During the second week of work, the intersections at Maple and Cliff Streets will be closed. However, north and southbound traffic on Yellowstone Highway will still be able to continue through the area. Detours will be in place for motorists traveling on Maple and Cliff Streets.

This project is being carried out in collaboration with the Eastern Idaho Railroad as part of a larger effort to remove unused sections of railroad tracks in the city. In 2023, a similar project was completed on South Capital Avenue, from Park Avenue to South Utah Avenue, as well as on the south side of the Idaho Falls Public Library and Shoup Avenue.

For any questions or concerns regarding this project, residents are encouraged to contact the Idaho Falls Street Division at 208-612-8490. The city urges everyone to exercise caution while traveling through this area during construction.
