Several projects are getting underway in Sioux Falls and some ongoing projects will make some changes this week that you'll want to know about.
Starting Tuesday curb and gutter work in the intersection of 57th Street and Cliff Avenue will get underway. Eastbound and westbound traffic on 57th Street will be limited to one straight through lane with right turn movements in each direction at the intersection. Left turn lanes will be in place for both eastbound and westbound traffic. Traffic control for this work will start at 9:00 Tuesday morning and it will run through Friday June 29th. Delays are expected and you might want to think about avoiding this area.
Concrete repairs are also underway on Minnesota Avenue. Work is being done at 11th Street & Minnesota Avenue, 22nd Street & Minnesota Avenue, and 26th Street & Minnesota Avenue. All lanes on Minnesota Avenue will remain open at these three intersections, but various lanes will be closed on 11th Street, 22nd Street, and 26th Street for this work. Delays are expected as these are high traffic areas. Also, Tuesday concrete repairs will begin at 14th Street & Minnesota Avenue. Lane closures will occur on 14th Street and southbound Minnesota Avenue. Delays are to be expected. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes. Work in all four of these intersections is expected to last approximately one week.
Lowell Avenue is also closed just south of Rice Street at the railroad tracks. Traffic entering and exiting the neighborhood south of Rice Street will have to access the neighborhood using Lowell Avenue and Leadale Avenue from Sixth Street. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad is replacing railroad ties at the rail crossing. The work is anticipated to last approximately one week.
Also Tuesday Phase 2 of the concrete repairs will begin on West 18th Street between Duluth Avenue and Walts Avenue. The second phase will involve the street closure of 18th Street from Norton Avenue to Summit Avenue. Through traffic will be detoured one block to the north and south. Traffic delays are expected so if you can take another way you should consider it. The second phase of work is expected to last one week, and the entire project should be done by July 13th.
Construction crews have also started work on 13th Street between Walts Avenue and Duluth Avenue. Work will include pavement removal, water main replacement, miscellaneous utility repairs, new curb and gutter, and asphalt paving. 13th Street will be closed to traffic during construction and is expected to reopen in September. Motorists should utilize 12th Street as an alternate route.
Various intermittent lane closures are also underway along West 12th Street between Marion Road and Ellis Road to allow crews to perform some miscellaneous road repairs in this area. Traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. Traffic delays are expected. Weather permitting, the work is expected to last one week.
Tuesday morning, June 26th, 26th Street will be closed between Discovery Avenue and Sertoma Avenue. A detour will be set up using Sertoma Avenue, 22nd Street, and Discovery Avenue. The City of Sioux Falls Public Works will be overlaying 26th Street. The work is anticipated to be done by Tuesday night.
