The City of Twin Falls has closed the Canyon Springs Grade to pedestrians due to falling rock from the canyon rim wall. City workers are clearing the rock and debris from the roadway, which is currently closed to pedestrians and general vehicle traffic until the road can be cleared.

( The city will post signs at the grade cautioning pedestrians against walking the grade, and drivers should use extra caution on the grade due to the potential for falling rock. The city closed the grade to pedestrians during the winter of 2017, as freezing and thawing cycles increased the potential for significant rock fall.

The city will notify residents when debris has been cleared and the roadway is reopened to vehicles. However, the grade is expected to be closed to pedestrians through the winter or until further notice.
