SF Road Construction Nearing Completion

September 30, 2010, 6:03 PM by Nicole Winters

SF Road Construction Nearing Completion
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Road construction seems to be never ending in Sioux Falls. Constant, heavy rains slowed projects this summer and fall, but the nice stretch of weather is allowing crews to catch up.

"It's been a busy summer for street construction," Sioux Falls Principal Engineer Joshua Peterson said.

While many projects are complete, crews still have three big jobs left to finish on River Boulevard, Minnesota Avenue and 8th Street in downtown.

"The light at the end of the tunnel is near, and we should be seeing things wrap up in the next month or so," Peterson said.

That's welcome news considering heavy rains slowed work over the summer and even into early fall. Despite those set backs, the only major project that’s running behind is 8th Street.

"They're about a week behind schedule on that. We're still pretty confident we shouldn't have any problems getting it finished," Peterson said.

Crews are now welcoming the nice stretch of weather.  They're hard at work trying to complete projects before the snow flies.

"The contractors are all smiles to see the sunshine for an extended period of time. It helps them to put a lot of production into their work and get a lot done in a short amount of time," Peterson said.

Crews will continue to work overtime, and as long as the nice weather continues, the orange cones will be out of the way in no time.

"Our slogan has been smoother roads ahead. I think everybody will appreciate when construction is done with and have some smooth roads," Peterson said.

Re-paving on Minnesota Avenue will wrap up by the end of next week.  River Boulevard should be done by mid October, and 8th Street is set for completion by the end of October.
