Independence Day is tomorrow and the Idaho Falls Police Department wants people to know about several road closures and changes that will be happening this year.
Memorial drive from “E” Street to Broadway will be closed to all vehicle traffic and will not re-open until Friday morning.
Also tomorrow night, for the first time the I-15 northbound off ramp, exit 119 will be closed between 10 p.m. and midnight, also the 118 northbound ramp will be closed during that same time.
“We’re trying to establish an emergency lane on Riverside Drive, and it will be the northbound outside lane which will be just for emergency vehicles, people can walk in it, but we can’t have them sit in it” said Sergeant Dave Frei of the Idaho Falls Police Department.
Also, one more reminder that Jefferson Avenue and “I” Street will be closed from Elva to Temple Place to all motorized vehicle traffic starting at 6 p.m.
