Project Update 6/15/2021 

  • The concrete repairs in Phase 1 of Kiwanis Avenue from 12th street to 26th street have been substantially completed.   
  • Beginning Wednesday, June 16th, the contractor will be diamond grinding the roadway surface in Phase 1 from 12th street to 26th street. 
  • Joint sealing and application of permanent pavement markings will immediately follow. 
  • Once finished, Phase 1 repairs will be fully completed.
  • Concrete repairs have started in the southbound lanes between 41st street and 33rd street – Phase 3.
  • NOTE:  The project schedule was revised in that, Phase 2 work was switched with Phase 3 work. 
  • This was done to ensure the completion of the repairs near O’Gorman school before classes resume. 
  • Repairs in Phase 2, 26th street to 33rd street will commence after repairs in Phase 3, 33rd street to 41st street have been completed.
    The patch mix product being placed in the partial depth repair areas is temperature sensitive. 
  • The prolonged high temperatures the Sioux Falls area has been experiencing has potential to slow construction progress.
