41st Street construction underway at end of March

Posted: Updated:

With nearly 3,000 people moving into Sioux Falls every year, the city is growing quickly and construction projects with the city of Sioux Falls are trying to keep up.

A new project on the southwest side of Sioux Falls will begin Monday, March 24th. Crews will start by repairing concrete on the 41st Street between Sertoma Avenue and Tea-Ellis Road.

Starting on March 31st, crews will shut down that stretch of 41st Street to begin work expanding lanes and building traffic lights.

"At the intersection were signalizing 41st Street and Ellis Road. We're going to be putting in a signal in at 41st and Grinnell and we're also going to be increasing the number of lanes at 41st and Sertoma Ave. Then, it will be a four-lane intersection from Ellis to Sertoma after we are done," SF City Principal Engineer Heath Hoftiezer said.

Signs are already in place to indicate the beginning of the project which will create detours for drivers in the area.

"People just need to be aware that of having to use alternate routes to get to the business between Sertoma and Ellis on 41st st over the course of the summer and use caution when your driving along the detour routes," he said.

There are a number of businesses along 41st Street west of Sertoma Avenue that Hofteizer says will see little to no impact.

"There will always be a way to get to all the businesses along 41st Street. Sometimes it will be different ways through back access. We have worked with those businesses the last three years as we have prepared for these projects and how we are going to get people to them while we are doing the work," Heath Hoftiezer said.

The project should take roughly 7 months and wrap up just before the Thanksgiving holiday.
