Orange Cone Zone: Sioux Falls to Kick off Two Construction Projects
Sioux Falls is planning a couple of late-season construction projects that drivers will need to be mindful of in the coming days.
Starting today, (September 21), construction crews will close down the sidewalks and lanes at the intersections of 8th Street and Dakota Avenue, 8th Street and Main Avenue, and 11th Street and Phillips Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls.
Dakota News Now reports that over the next week, crews will be working to make repairs to the accessible curb ramps. Motorists in the downtown area can expect still to see one lane of traffic in each direction while the work is being done at those intersections. However, be advised that traffic will more than likely be moving at a slower pace throughout the process.
The City of Sioux Falls is requesting that motorists use caution when traveling through the construction area, or consider using alternate routes while the construction is underway.
Also, starting on Friday (September 22) crews plan to kick off a construction project inside Terrace Park.
According to Dakota News Now, work will be done to help improve the shoreline conditions of Covell Lake in and around the area of the Japanese Gardens. That portion of the park will be closed off to the public while the work is being conducted.
Again, park users are advised to use caution and stay away from the construction zones inside the Terrace Park area.
Crews hope to have that project wrapped up by the end of November.
