49th Street to Close at Louise Avenue in Sioux Falls for Additional Road Construction

My least favorite street to drive down is getting a massive and overdue facelift. That’s great. But it is about to get a little harder to get around in that area.

49th Street will close at Louise Avenue as part of what the city called in a press release the “flagship” project of the 2017 road construction season.

Further details will be released tomorrow (April 7) at a press conference held in the Hy-Vee parking lot with detour details.

I don’t know what the city is going to use for a detour, but I can tell you where I normally go just to avoid 49th and Louise before all of the construction, because I hate that intersection.

If you want to go east from northbound Louise, turn right on Tennis Lane and navigate to 51st and then Oxbow. If you want to go west turn left on 53rd Street to a right on Technology Drive and then a right onto Valahalla Boulevard.

If you are on southbound Louise, don’t drive southbound on Louise. Take the Interstate, Kiwanis Ave, or any other street and just go around.

If you are on 49th, use the two other detours together or just go eight blocks south to 57th.
