If your normal routine takes you through the state's busiest intersection at 41st & Louise in Sioux Falls, you may want to find an alternate route for the next week.

Road crews are beginning concrete repairs today (November 9) between 34th and 41st streets on Louise Avenue.

A water main broke in that area this summer, and now crews are going to replace the temporary asphalt with permanent. Crews will begin cutting the asphalt today to prepare for the work they'll start Monday/

On Friday morning, the southbound lane between 34th Street and 41st Street on Louise will be closed. That lane will re-open Friday afternoon.

But on Monday, the lane will be closed again through Thursday as they replace the road with new concrete.

The plan is to finish by Thursday or Friday.

Crews are asking you to avoid the area for the next week or so.
