Sioux City receives another boost for the Southbridge Business Park
Sioux City, IOWA (KTIV) - City officials say they are working hard to market the Southbridge Business Park and with the announcement of almost a $5-million dollar RISE grant coming from the Iowa Department of Transportation Commission, they say they will be able to keep moving ahead with projects.
The money will be used to pave over 16-thousand feet of roads of the business park near the Sioux Gateway Airport.
With this boost, city officials say they are moving in the forward with the project.
"Now we have the ability to complete these projects and have shovel ready sites for the development of new jobs and investment in Sioux City," said Marty Dougherty, Economic Development Director for Sioux City.
City officials say they are working on a $53-million dollar infrastructure improvement in Southbridge to include a water treatment plant, water and sanitary lines in the area, and paving and storm improvements.
"We're very excited that we got these additional funds to be able to complete these projects and we are pressing on with the design and the construction of it," said Chris Payer, S.C. Public Works Director.
City officials are also waiting to hear if they will be awarded other grants to help with the project.
