The latest phase of an ongoing road construction project in Sioux Falls will force the temporary closure of an eastside intersection.

Beginning Friday (April 28), the South Dakota Department of Transportation says the intersection at South Dakota Highway 42 (Arrowhead Parkway) will be closed to southbound Six Mile Road traffic. The north side of the intersection will remain open to traffic and will not be affected by this closure.

Crews will be grading and graveling the intersection in preparation for placing concrete surfacing.
