Sioux Falls House Move Will Affect Traffic On Tues (12-7)
When most people move, they just take their furniture and other belongings. Then there are those who move their entire house.
Seeing a huge house rolling down a Sioux Falls street is exciting, except for when that rolling house becomes a roadblock and makes you late for an appointment or work. That's why Sioux Falls Police is giving commuters a heads up about a house relocation happening on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. The move will begin at 8:30 am.
According to a Tweet from the Sioux Falls Police Department, the assigned route will run from 95th Street, S on Western Ave, E on W 41st, N on Minnesota Ave to W 12th Street. Police describe the house as 'large'. Significant delays should be expected and commuters should plan an alternate route if possible.
UPDATE: The Tweet says the route will go "S on Western Ave, E on W 41st" and that has some people confused on the SFPD Facebook and Twitter. Why would the house go south on Western before going East on 41st? Seems like a strange way to go, but that is what the Tweet says.
In fact, on Monday morning SFPD reposted the info on both Twitter and Facebook with the same route unchanged. Either way, we should expect a house to be on Western, 41st, and Minnesota on Tuesday morning. Plan accordingly.
Below is a gallery of a duplex that was moved in March of 2020. A duplex was 'sawed' in half and transported on two flatbed trailers. The duplex used to sit at the corner of South Covell Street and West 33rd Street across from the Augustana softball field. I have no idea where the house is today but it was cool to see two trucks hauling two buildings.
Here's the scene in March 2020...
Here's the same spot in 2021...
