Road Construction Could Cause Problems When School Starts

Road Construction Could Cause Problems When School Starts

Even though summer vacation is nearing its end, some road construction projects in Sioux Falls are far from over.

The road construction at the corner of 10th and Sycamore is a couple blocks away from Washington High School, but as a main intersection of traffic in the area, many students go through it on their way to and from school.

The road construction won't just affect students. Dianna Schaffer lives on Sycamore near the intersection of 10th street, and she says when the academic year starts, traffic is backed up in front of her property for about an hour after school is out for the day. With the added construction project, cars may be spending even more time in front of her house.

“It's frustrating, but that's part of living on a busy street,” Schaffer said.

Starting tomorrow morning at six, drivers traveling southbound will not be allowed to turn right at the 10th street intersection. This will be effective until late Tuesday night.

The entire project at 10th and Sycamore is scheduled to be done on October 3rd. We'll have more on how this road construction is going to make getting to school difficult for some people tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at ten.
