Reconstruction Of East Arrowhead Parkway In Sioux Falls To Begin On Monday

Sioux Falls, S.D. – The city will be reconstructing another major road in Sioux Falls.

The $9.4 million project is set to begin on Monday. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on East Arrowhead Parkway. The street will be widened to six lanes including a median with left turn lanes, underground utility work, and new traffic signals. It will get an asphalt overlay between Veteran’s Parkway and Gordon Drive. The intersection of Arrowhead Parkway and Highline Avenue that leads into Dawley Farm will also be reconstructed.

“In a few weeks, they will need to close the south leg of the Highline intersection. Arrowhead will be unaffected,” said City of Sioux Falls Civil Engineer Josh VandenBos. “there is a detour set up on Foss and then from there you’ll be able to use the ring road to get to the Walmart, businesses and all that.”

Next year, Arrowhead Parkway from Highline to Sycamore Avenues will also be reconstructed. More than 18,000 vehicles travel on Arrowhead Parkway per day. The city expects that number to increase to 42,000 by year 2040.

This is a joint project between the city of Sioux Falls and the South Dakota Department of Transportation.
