SIOUX CITY | The northbound Interstate 29 ramps to Wesley Parkway and Floyd Boulevard in Sioux City will reopen at 5 p.m. Friday, as work on the northbound lanes near completion in 2017.

The Iowa Department of Transportation in a release announced the ramp changes.

Contractors will open the northbound I-29 off-ramp to Wesley Parkway at Exit 148, plus open the northbound I-29 on-ramp from Floyd Boulevard and Virginia Street.

In late November, IDOT officials said the northbound lanes from Floyd Boulevard to just past Hamilton Boulevard were nearly complete, and that traffic would be switched over to the new lanes shortly after Thanksgiving.

The project to modernize widen I-29 to three lanes in each direction from Sergeant Bluff, through Sioux City, to the South Dakota border is in its ninth year. The project is slated to take two more years, with an estimated $400 million over the 11 years.
