SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – As many of us are aware the I-29 Project has been ongoing for several years now.
The final stage of downtown construction is almost complete, according to the Department of Transportation leaders.
Construction on and near the Downtown Corridor began in the Spring of 2012.
The goal was to reconstruct the Wesley Parkway interchange, Tri-View Boulevard, and a retaining wall from the Floyd River to Bacon Creek.
According to Sioux City DOT managers, the next major step in construction will be the reopening of the Wesley Parkway Ramp.
“With the opening of the Wesley Parkway ramp, that offers another opportunity for traffic leaving the city. We have that detour on, so if you’re in South Sioux you have to weave your way through the city and that will help to alleviate that issue,” said District Three Transportation Planner, Dakin Schultz.
DOT managers say that exit will reopen by the end of this month.
