10th Street And I-229 Overpass Work In Sioux Falls To Continue


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Buskerud Construction, Inc., a contractor for the South Dakota Department of Transportation, will be continuing concrete repair work on the 10th Street interchange over I-229 in Sioux Falls. 


The following closures will affect traffic.


  • The right-turn lanes on eastbound and westbound 10th Street, as well as the I-229 right turn, off-ramps at 10th Street, will be closed from Friday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. to Monday, Oct. 8 at 6 a.m.


  • On Monday, Oct. 8 at 6 a.m. until Friday, Oct. 12, single lane closures will occur on eastbound and westbound 10th Street.  The 10th Street on- and off-ramps will also have half-lane closures to facilitate the concrete repair work.


Motorists are encouraged to use the U-turns at the Lowell and Cleveland Avenue intersections instead of using the right-turn lanes. 


Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the construction zones at times when the work is being done. Motorists should expect delays though the construction areas and stay alert for workers, equipment, lane closures, lane shifts and suddenly slowing traffic. 


The substantial completion date for the $2.5 million project is Oct. 26.
