Interstate work wrapping up, but some crews won't let winter stop them

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

As cooler weather pushes in, work on Interstate 29 is wrapping up, for now.

Southbound lanes near the Singing Hills exit will be the next to open.  The Iowa Department of Transportation hopes to have Wesley Way open before Thanksgiving.

However, you'll see some orange cones through winter.  One contractor has requested permission to work on future phases of the Wesley Way segment.

Funding could put the project on pause down the road.

"The transportation bill is actually a two-year bill, and our project right now, we're looking at another six years of construction. So, there's always the question, will the funding be there," Dakin Schultz, of the Iowa DOT said.  

Next year's projects include work on expanding the interstate south of Singing Hills to the train bridge.  They'll also build a 3rd Street connection to the interstate.
