St. Clair Road work may bring temporary detours

Sections of St. Clair Road may be closed to traffic this month as Idaho Falls Power crews replace power poles between 17th and 25th Streets. Work is set to begin Monday.

St. Clair will not be closed to traffic the entire time, but there may be days when the safety of the crews will necessitate brief shutdowns along certain stretches.

The project is part of the city-owned utility’s effort to replace deteriorated poles, some of which are more than 60 years old.
