Pocatello Residents, Businesses Complain About Noise, Traffic
(POCATELLO, ID) – Construction on Yellowstone Avenue in Pocatello is causing major traffic congestion and leaving some residents with headaches. KPVI reports that the work near the Fresh Start car dealership is going late into the night in order to avoid traffic when it’s the busiest. For those living nearby, the pounding jackhammers can be heard until 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. Some say they’re running out of options and that authorities won’t listen. City officials say the project, which will be completed in September, is crucial for updating water lines.
