Beginning on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, Western Avenue from 57th Street to Interstate 229 will be closed. Construction crews will be installing underground utility upgrades, a 54 inch sanitary sewer crossing on Western Avenue, and additional turning lanes at the intersection of 57th Street and Western Avenue. This closure will last for approximately three weeks.
During the closure, Western Avenue traffic will be detoured on 57th Street, Minnesota Avenue, and Interstate 229. During construction, traffic will be maintained on 57th Street and Western Avenue south of 57th Street, but traffic delays are to be expected. Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling through the construction zone and may consider alternate routes.
The prime contractor for this project is D&G Concrete Construction, Inc. from Sioux Falls.
