When is construction starting?

A public event was offered Monday at the City Center to discuss construction with commuters and other members of the public. The actual construction is expected to start this week.

The City of Sioux Falls hosted an open house to talk about the Cliff Avenue Reconstruction from 49th Street to 56th Street, on Monday, May 9, 2022.

“The project has been bid and the contractor is ready to start on this Wednesday,” said Shannon Ausen, engineering program manager for the City of Sioux Falls. “Beginning as early as this Wednesday, they will reduce the lanes.”

Construction will close Cliff Avenue in second phase

The planned road work on Cliff Avenue from 49th Street to 56th Street will be done in two phases, according to Ausen.
