IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - UPDATE 2/18/21: The Idaho Falls Street Division has completed snow removal operations associated with the recent weather event.

The parking restrictions will remain in place until the city issues another notice to officially lift them. Vehicles should be moved off the streets to allow room for plows to clear the roads.
