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.

The work is expected to be completed by Friday, May 5.
During the closure, a detour will be in effect at Veterans Parkway to 26th Street to Six Mile Road south of the Highway 42 (Arrowhead Parkway) intersection.
The work is part of the latest phase in the two-year project which will reconstruct and widen Arrowhead Parkway from East 10th Street to the Willow Run Golf Course entrance, and also reconstruct, widen, and realign Six Mile Road to cross Arrowhead Parkway at a safer angle. Improvements include a new water main, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, street lights, traffic signals, curb and gutter, and concrete surfacing.
The entire project is expected to be completed by September 29.
