Project: P 1282(06), PCN 00KE, Minnehaha County & CIP 497099, PCN X02K, Minnehaha County
Location: Russell Street, from Westport Ave. to Minnesota Ave. in Sioux Falls
Improvement Type: Grading, PCCP Surfacing, ROW, Replacement of Structures #50-183-195 WB & #50-183-196 EB, Water and Sanitary Sewer Upgrades
Due to the increase in traffic volumes Russell Street will be reconstructed to a six-lane roadway from Westport Avenue to Minnesota Avenue with the entire widening taking place between the service roads. The westbound lanes will include three 11.5' vehicle lanes and a 6' bike lane. The eastbound lanes will include three 11.5' vehicle lanes, a 6' bike lane, a 10' grass boulevard, and a 10' shared use path. There will be a new storm water system installed to alleviate storm water issues that arise in this area during heavy rain events. In addition, the two bridges over the Big Sioux River will be replaced.
The project will be constructed in 6 phases. The westbound lanes will be constructed in 2013 and the eastbound lanes will be constructed in 2014. The overall completion date is November 21, 2014.
Traffic Effects During Construction:
Thru traffic will be maintained at all times. Motorists should expect delays through the construction area and stay alert for workers, equipment, lane closures, lane shifts, and sudden slowing of traffic.
