I-229 Road Work May Cause Delays
You may have seen the electronic signs warning of work on the interstate. And as the work week gets back into full swing drivers will find some delays on I-229 in Sioux Falls. The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) reports that work will begin on the bridge that crosses the Big Sioux River on I-229. Crews will start Tuesday evening at 8:00 PM and continue for a while. From SDDOT:
“Motorists can expect single lane closures between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-229 at the overpass structures of Cliff and Minnesota avenues. Various lane closures will also occur during daylight hours to complete the work. Motorists should expect delays though the construction area and stay alert for workers, equipment, lane closures, lane shifts and suddenly slowing traffic. Drivers are reminded that fines are double in work zones.”
Crews will be resuming epoxy chip seal work on I-229. Completion date for the project is October 26th.
