W. 12th Street Project Delays Drivers

W. 12th Street Project Delays Drivers
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The construction project along West 12th Street between Interstate 29 and Kiwanis Avenue was started back in early June and crews continute to work on it.

The pavement is anywhere between 15 and 20 years old and in need of improvements. Crews have worked through the summer, causing significant delays during peak hours of driving in the morning and in the afternoon.

Drivers are feeling the strain, and businesses have been dealing with the work all summer as well.

"A lot of people are understanding; it's good to live in South Dakota where people understand a lot of things, but a lot of frustration. We've had a lot of people mention it's super difficult to get in and out of," Interstate Batteries manager Casey Crabtree said.

"We're a few days behind where we had hoped to be, but overall, the contractors have been performing well and with that amount of traffic coming through the project while we're trying to get a lot of pavement repairs done, the project has gone surprisingly well," street engineer Wes Phillips said.

While it is usually a three-lane stretch of road, it's been knocked down to just one to accommodate the construction.
