More Fixing on 49th Street in Sioux Falls

A section of 49th Street in western Sioux Falls is getting major modifications. Another project begins soon on the east side between Cliff and Southeastern Avenues.

Work begins Monday (June 5th) on a piece of 49th Street that is in need of an upgrade according to Engineer Scott LaVoy of Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc.

“It’s taken a beating over the last two decades since the last treatment it’s had. (There’s) a lot of potholes out there that need to get fixed and a lot of ride quality issues. We’re hoping this project takes care of that stuff.”

Phase one will be in the middle of the road to fix the manholes and LaVoy says traffic will be allowed during all three segments of work.

“Traffic during that (first) phase will be driving on either side of the work zone. Once the sanitary sewer work that we’re doing is finished, we’re going to switch the traffic over to the north side of the street. When that phase is done, they’ll flip-flop that and the traffic will be on the south side and the work will be on the north side.”

LaVoy expects the project to be finished within eight weeks. Except for short intervals all the intersections that cross 49th Street will be open for the duration of improvements.

Approximately one mile of street will be improved in a predominately residential area. Crews will only go up to the railroad crossing on the eastern edge of the project and not go all the way to Southeastern Avenue.
