The City of Twin Falls has paid attention to the groundhog as well. Projects that will be slowing down traffic with cones, road closed signs, and flaggers should be expected. There is a fire hydrant that is deteriorating and needs to be replaced. The city plans to work on replacing the hydrant located around 2400 Addison Avenue East on February 15th.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area of Addison near Dover Lane if possible. The project is planned to begin at 8 AM on Thursday and be finished that day. The eastbound lanes will be directed to alternate moving through the westbound lane using flaggers during the hydrant replacement. Any questions about the project can be directed to Twin Fall Public Works Department at 208-736-2226.
