Run it home with one headlight

TWIN FALLS — Strategically dodging the plethora of mud puddles on the way to Auger Falls, it occurred to me that joining a group of runners for a moonlight jog was perhaps not my best idea. Canyon Springs Road can be unpredictable at night. Fortunately, it turned out to be my best idea of the day.

Highway sealcoat project expected to begin near Buhl

BUHL — Weather permitting, seal-coat work will begin this week on Idaho Highway 46 near Buhl, between mileposts 85 and 91. This is the final stage of the U.S. Highway 30 to Ken Curtis Bridge paving project which occurred last year. Work is anticipated to be complete within two days.

Downtown pipeline maintenance creates traffic restrictions

TWIN FALLS — Contractors with the city of Twin Falls will clean and rehabilitate wastewater pipelines in downtown Twin Falls through June 28. Work will take place in alleys adjacent to Main Avenue between Fairfield and Liberty streets and along intersecting roads with those alleys. Additionally, work will take place along Shoshone Street South between Fifth and Sixth avenues. The construction process — known as cured-in-place piping — will install a new sewer pipe inside the older deteriorated sewer pipe, greatly improving wastewater service in the downtown area. The new sewer pipe will be installed through existing sewer manholes, so the process often does not require digging the roadway unless a broken pipe is located.
