Numerous Lane Closures Impacting Sioux Falls Traffic
Drivers on some of the busiest streets in Sioux Falls will be dealing with some additional traffic headaches over the next several days.
A quartet of utility-related projects are all getting underway today (July 31), including a pair that will impact downtown streets.
The first is on North Phillips Avenue.
The parking lane on the east side of the road, between East Eighth Street and East Sixth Street, is closed to allow Xcel Energy to do work in the area.
The closure will be in effect until Saturday (August 4).
Just a few blocks away, the outside southbound lane on North Minnesota Avenue, between West Third Street and West Eighth Street, is also closed.
Mid-American Energy is installing new gas mains in the area.
The closure will be in effect for about a month.
Elsewhere, the outside eastbound lane of West 12th Street is closed between the Big Sioux River Bridge and Kiwanis Avenue to allow crews to perform sidewalk repairs.
Two eastbound lanes will remain open to traffic at all times. Westbound traffic will not be impacted.
The work should be completed in a week.
In Southeast Sioux Falls, the outside lanes on East 57th Street will be closed between South Pennbrook Ave and South Pheasant Lane to allow Xcel Energy to do work in the area.
The closure is expected to last two weeks.
