SIOUX CITY | Repairs on the Interstate 29 bridges over the Big Sioux River will reduce traffic passing between Iowa and South Dakota to one lane beginning this week.
Contractors were scheduled to begin bridge deck joint repair and overlays, approach pavement replacement and guardrail replacement Wednesday, according to the South Dakota Department of Transportation.
The southbound bridge will be finished first, and work is scheduled to begin Sept. 4 on the northbound bridge. During construction, only one lane of traffic over the bridge will be open, and concrete barriers will be set up to separate traffic from the work zones. Work on the $3.6 million project is expected to be completed by Nov. 1.
