SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
A Sioux City street extension project, tied up for years by property acquisitions is finally moving forward.
The plan is to extend Glen Oaks Boulevard to Chambers Street.
They'll also build a retention pond in an area plagued by flooding every year. The eight homes that experienced the biggest problems have been removed to make way for the work.
At $868,000, the project came in 23% below estimate.
"It is a good project because the homes have been removed, and then we'll pave the street, and raise the street up in that area," said Senior City Engineer Scott Logan.
The city originally planned to start construction in 2009, but it took longer than expected to acquire the properties needed for the project, with the city even entering into a legal battle over one of them.
Logan says crews will break ground in the next three to four weeks, and be finished by the end of the construction season.
