SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The city of Sioux City has announced several construction projects that will impact traffic.

According to press releases from the city, four projects will take place over the next few weeks.

Virginia Street Lane closures

The city’s engineering department says the closure of the lanes on the 100 block of Virginia Street will begin on the morning of March 29, 2021. During this closure, traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction.

There will be no detour for this closure, however city officials are encouraging drivers to use Pierce Street and Nebraska Street to avoid delays.

The repairs are expected to be completed within a week, depending on the weather.

Ingleside Avenue rebuilding project

Work on the Ingleside Avenue rebuilding project will resume on April 5, 2021.

The remainder of the project will be completed in one phase, closing 14th Street from Jackson Street to Ingleside Avenue and Ingleside Avenue from 14th Street to 15th Street.

The work should be completed by July 2021.

Indian Hills Drive Lane closure

A portion of Indian Hills Drive will be closed on March 29 to allow a private contractor to make utility connections to an adjacent property.

The closure is between Mohave Drive and Apache Court and is expected to remain closed until April 9th.

During this time, the contractor will have temporary signals to keep traffic going in both directions.
