South Western Avenue Reopened From 69th To LaQuinta Street
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The City of Sioux Falls announced on Monday that South Western Avenue is now open from 69th Street to LaQuinta Street. The street had been closed for approximately three weeks for reconstruction.
The reconstruction was a part of the ongoing project to reconstruct the South Western Avenue and West 69th Street intersection. The project includes underground utility upgrades, widening 69th Street to four lanes with a center median from Landau Circle to Minnesota Avenue, widening Western Avenue to five lanes from Remington Place to south of 69th Street, and more.
This $6.2 million project is expected to be fully open to traffic by late fall, with final completion scheduled for the spring of 2018.
The city is also urging drivers to use caution and reduce their speed while traveling near the construction area and that they should consider alternate routes.
