The City of Sioux Falls Public Works issued an emergency street closure on Wednesday morning.  

North Phillips Avenue was closed to through traffic between East McClellan Street and North Riverside Avenue.  Access will be maintained for local traffic for the duration of the closure.

The reason appears to be utility work which is anticipated to take just one day to complete.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed while traveling near the construction area and may want to consider alternate routes.
