Russell Street Project Affects Sioux Falls Business

May 27, 2014, 5:00 PM by Kathleen Serie

Russell Street Project Affects Sioux Falls Business
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Road construction on Russell Street in Sioux Falls is causing some businesses to see a decrease in sales. 

Randy Hillman has owned the Roll'n Pin Restaurant for more than 40 years. This year, his business' revenue is down anywhere from 25 to 33 percent due to the nearby road construction.

"The city engineers have tried to work hard and we've dealt with the mayor and people and they're trying their best and we're getting through it. We've increased our catering business, which has offset our sales somewhat, which we've enjoyed them sales," Hillman said.

Even though business is currently down, this restaurant owner is looking forward to a future of growth in this area of Sioux Falls.

"We're looking forward to the road construction to be done, the Denny Sanford Convention Center being open, and of course the Pentagon, which is just down the street from us," Hillman said.

Officials with Sioux Falls Public Works have a plan when it comes to dealing with road construction.

"We certainly know there is always going to be an impact when construction happens and so we kind of look at this in two different pieces. One is what can we do before the project begins and then what can we do once it's started," City Engineer Chad Huwe said.

During construction, the city makes sure that affected businesses have access to the project staff so they know who to contact with questions.

Construction on Russell Street is scheduled to be complete this fall.
