CSI breaks ground on new transportation technology center

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The College of Southern Idaho broke ground on a new transportation technology center this afternoon and are hoping to prepare students for jobs in these industries.

The transportation technology center will hold CSI’s heavy equipment ag technology and diesel technology programs as well as aiding in workforce training in the transportation sector.

Dual-credit opportunities will be available for high school students within the Twin Falls School District as well.

The groundbreaking ceremony today featured remarks from the Lieutenant Governor, CSI’s president and the superintendent of the Twin Falls School District as well as a handful of others.

Lt. Gov. Bedke spoke about the importance of this new educational opportunity.

“It’s the mission of CSI. It fits right in to this community, we need diesel mechanics and all the technicians that are associated with the diesel industry, we can’t get enough of them. The industries are begging for more well-trained graduates and CSI as always is going to step up and fill that role,” Bedke said.

The transportation technology center is estimated to be completed in 18 months, around October 2025 and the plan is for classes to start at the building in the spring of 2026.
