Sections of Butte, Jerome, Hiskey streets closed through July 31 for water repairs
POCATELLO — Portions of Butte and Jerome streets will be closed through July 31 while City of Pocatello Water Department employees perform maintenance on water mains in the area.
Crews will be installing pressure-regulating valves and performing mainline modifications on Butte Street from Hiskey Street to Appaloosa Avenue and at the intersection of Hiskey and Jerome streets. Because of construction, Butte Street will be closed from Hiskey Street to Appaloosa Avenue, and the intersection of Hiskey Street and Jerome Street will be closed.
Crews will work between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. During the project, access to the construction area will be restricted and sections of the road will be completely closed while workers are digging. Parking will be restricted during construction hours in the work zone and residents are asked to park vehicles away from this area during the day. At the close of each day, access will be restored to all properties. The work may cause short-term disruptions to water service and individuals around the construction zone are encouraged to keep a supply of drinking water available.
Officials thank the public for their understanding and apologize for any inconvenience the closure may cause. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the work schedule may change.
Residents with questions about the project are asked to contact the City of Pocatello Water Department at 208-234-6174.
