There are several spots in downtown Sioux City that have been reduced to one lane of traffic.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
You're probably wondering about some of the other major construction projects taking place in the downtown area. Many lanes are closed while construction on utilities and repaving of the roads takes place in Sioux City.
City leaders say there's about $7 million budgeted for repairs to the city's hundreds of miles of roads and utilities each year.
Public Works Director Jade Dundas says the city has been able to regularly improve its roadways over the years, while several other communities have been forced to tighten their belts.
He says a big reason for that is responsible planning for the future. That will mean a better connected city in the coming years.
"It's not just replacing things in kind. It's every time we have an opportunity we try to improve upon what's there," said Dundas.
Sioux City normally has a six-to-nine month window for road work. Construction on several downtown projects should be finished by September or early October.
