Xcel Energy Postpones Interstate 29 Closure

 

 

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Due to unforeseen technical issues, Xcel Energy is postponing the planned power line work on Interstate 29 one-half mile north of the Tea Exit 73 until Monday morning (May 13) at 2 a.m. The work was originally planned to be done this week.

 

A short-duration, full closure of both the north and southbound lanes of I-29 is planned at 2:30 a.m. Monday morning so that Xcel Energy can pull electrical conductors across the interstate. The conductors were damaged during the recent ice storm.

 

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on I-29 one-half mile north of Exit 73 on Monday (May 13) between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. and from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

 

On Tuesday, May 14, Interstate 29 will again be reduced to one lane in each direction one-half mile north of Exit 73 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
