Work on Cliff Avenue and Benson Road in Sioux Falls


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Beginning Saturday morning, July 21, crews will begin work in the northeast quadrant of the North Cliff Avenue and Benson Road intersection in Sioux Falls. 


The City of Sioux Falls will be closing the westbound left-turn lane and two through-lanes on the east side of the intersection.


Westbound traffic on the east side of the intersection will be shifted to the south, allowing one lane for through-traffic and right turns.  Westbound left turns to North Cliff Avenue will not be allowed during that time. 


Eastbound through-traffic and right turns will be reduced to one lane on the west side of the intersection. 


Traffic is anticipated to be restored to its respective lanes by Sunday, July 29, with the exception of the westbound outside lane on Benson Road on the east side of the intersection.  That lane will remain closed while crews continue work.    


The substantial completion date for the project is Nov. 30 and the prime contractor is T&R Contracting, Inc. of Sioux Falls.
