Some Major Sioux Falls Road Projects Starting Late

Road Construction

SIOUX FALLS – Some of the 22 major road construction projects planned this season in South Dakota’s largest city are starting later than expected because of prolonged winter weather.

But Sioux Falls city engineer Brad Ludens tells the Argus Leader newspaper that the multimillion-dollar projects are expected to be completed on time.

Ludens says contractors should be able to make up the time lost to snow and ice storms late last month.

The total amount of new city projects and joint city-state projects is $63.2 million.

The South Dakota Department of Transportation says a contractor on Monday is beginning a $570,000 rehabilitation of bridges on Highway 44, Highway 47 and Highway 1806 in Gregory County. Traffic will be reduced to one 12-foot lane of traffic.

Work is also beginning on projects in Eureka.

A 3-million reconstruction of Highway 10 from the south junction of Highway 47 on the west to the north Highway 47 junction on the east side of Eureka will include grading, curbs and gutters, sidewalks, storm sewers, lighting and asphalt concrete surfacing.

The city of Eureka is also beginning an $890,000 sewer improvement project that will replace more than 12,000 feet of sanitary sewer pipe and 33 manholes.
