The closure at the intersection of Russell St. and Kiwanis Ave. began Monday. One local business says it's feeling the impact.
Orange barrels can be seen up and down Russell St. as crews continue to work and the City of Sioux Falls says construction is moving along.
"Assuming weather cooperates and we keep moving like we have we will more than likely be ahead of schedule," Civil Engineer City of Sioux Falls Dena Knutson said.
Now, crews are working on a storm sewer installation. That project has closed the busy intersection to drivers, leaving a problem for Food N Fuel.
"Obviously this weekend it really affected us, with Easter weekend and the holiday, but it's affected our night business more than anything," Food N Fuel store manager Jodie Sixtoes said.
Sixtoes says even with the road closure, drivers can still get into the parking lot.
"I think once people realize when they can get in and get out still onto Russell - then they're stopping," Sixtoes said.
Sixtoes is doing what she can to remind people the store is open.
"I know that they made signs to say we are still open. The city has made signs. The owner has made signs, nothing has changed for us, we're still here. We're just waiting for it to be done," Sixtoes said.
While she waits for construction to pass, Sixtoes and her crew are doing everything they can to keep busy.
"We're just doing a lot of spring cleaning, we're just doing things we can to stay busy," Sixtoes said.
After construction is complete, crews will close down the intersection at West Avenue. When that is complete crews will be working on the intersection at Western Avenue. Construction should be complete by October.
