Sioux Falls intersection opens ahead of schedule

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Falls, South Dakota: The City of Sioux Falls is pleased to announce that construction work at the intersection of West 57th Street and South Western Avenue in southern Sioux Falls has been substantially completed more than six weeks early. Key factors in this positive outcome include overall favorable weather, an excellent contracting team, and financial incentives offered by the City to the contractor if certain time conditions were met, including overall early completion of the project.

"Financial incentives are one tool the City uses to encourage timely completion of high-impact projects," says Mark Cotter, Director of Public Works. "More than 30,000 vehicles utilize the intersection of 57th Street and Western Avenue each day. The City wanted to do everything possible to expedite this project due to the large traffic volumes in such close proximity to local businesses, City parks, and the interstate system."
