Sioux Falls’ road construction season 2017 has kicked off with a huge project to update South Louise Avenue.

This is one of the busiest stretches of road in the state with 26,000 vehicles traveling on it everyday. The road work will disrupt things in the Empire Mall area for a while. When it’s done thought, it should be better able to handle Sioux Falls’ growing traffic.

“It will be worth it in the long run, and we thank you in advance for your patience,” says Mark Cotter, Director of Public Works.

  • Underground utility replacement
  • Widening Louise Avenue to six lanes
  • Adding a center median to Louise Avenue with with left-turn lanes
  • Widening the 49th Street intersection to include dual left turn lanes on 49th Street
