April marks start of heavy road project season in Sioux Falls
City Hall, state DOT will spend tens of millions this year on major street, interchange work
Get ready for orange cones and detours, Sioux Falls.
The city of Sioux Falls and the South Dakota Department of Transportation will kick off a series of major road construction projects next month totaling more than $100 million worth of construction.
From the continuation of the 41st Street and Interstate 29 interchange reconstruction to the next phase of the Veterans Parkway corridor, the Sioux Falls Public Works Department, and their partners with the state transportation office, will manage dozens of projects throughout the 2023 construction season.
“We understand having orange cones along your commute can mean a few extra minutes,” Sioux Falls City Engineer Andy Berg said during a pre-construction season news conference at City Hall Wednesday. “Residents should consider alternate routes, when possible, and please slow down when driving through construction zones. The people working are your neighbors and they’re improving the roadways for everyone.”
Here’s a look at a few of the major projects on tap, what drivers can expect and how much the work will cost taxpayers.
