SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says I-229, north and southbound, in Sioux Falls will be reduced to one lane east of the Cliff Avenue exit beginning Friday, July 26. The lane closures are expected to last 7-10 days.


The lane closures are for an application of a High Friction Surface Treatment on the highway curves to improve driver safety.


Motorists canexpect congestion during the day, particularly during the morning and evening peak hours and are encouraged to use an alternate route during this time.


The High Friction Surface Treatment is part of the $36.5 million project being completed on I-229 & 26th Street.


Completion date for this project is Nov. 13, 2020.


The prime contractor on this project D&G Concrete Construction of Sioux Falls.
