Sioux Falls Road Construction Will Limit Access to Empire Mall
Getting to the Empire Mall is about to become a bit more challenging.
Beginning Monday (August 28), the westernmost entrance to the mall parking lot from 41st Street will be closed to traffic for about one week.
But there is good news.
That same day, the easternmost entrance to the mall parking lot will reopen.
The work is all part of the 41st Street/I-29 Diverging Diamond Interchange Project (DDI) which, when finished in the Summer of 2024, will feature a brand new way for traffic to navigate merging to and from the interstate to 41st Street.
According to the project's website:
The DDI resembles a conventional diamond interchange. Drivers make right turns at a DDI just as they would at a regular diamond interchange. Drivers who want to turn left cross over to the left side of the road and then make their left turn. Because traffic is on the left side of the road between the crossover points, all left turns occur without having to cross opposing traffic.
